Small but Mighty – Empowering Babies’ NICU Journey

Combining innovative technology with exceptional thermal performance, the Giraffe Incubator Carestation is a state-of-the-art neonatal environment that promotes natural, peaceful healing, while fostering a close bond between families and their babies—allowing them to be present for every step of the journey. Additionally, physicians have improved access to their smallest patients, giving them a better chance at providing successful treatment, the very first time around.


Promoting Neurodevelopmental Care and Growth

The Giraffe Incubator Carestation was thoughtfully designed to nurture the close connection between babies and their caregivers, allowing parents comfortable, close access to their babies and family-friendly information about their babies’ progress, while clinicians can closely care for their newborn patients. Additional benefits include:

Enhancing the Care Continuum

Offers clinicians the intuitive and reliable neonatal solution they need, while parents receive the access and support they want, to promote optimal neurodevelopmental care.

Comprehensive Design in a Controlled Environment

When paired with the Giraffe Shuttle, the Giraffe Incubator Carestation provides continuous warmth during intrahospital transport, in addition to promoting the growth and stability of even the most fragile of patients.

Easy Access to Success

With integrated features, including the translating and rotating mattress, an elevating base and the removable in-bed scale, the Giraffe Incubator Carestation empowers clinicians to send babies home safe, healthy and as quickly as possible by providing enhanced visibility and patient interaction.


The Warming Touch of Care

Every part of the Giraffe Incubator Carestation was thoughtfully engineered to enhance the care experience, while providing the best possible neuroprotective environment for the newborn.

Heat loss prevention

If either door panel is opened, Air Boost can be easily enabled to protect the baby from heat loss and support thermal stability.

Patented Baby Susan rotating mattress

Thanks to the patented Baby Susan* technology, clinicians can easily reposition the baby, reducing negative touch and stimulation, while improving procedural success. Additionally, the mattress is pressure diffusing, thus reacting to the impact of the baby’s body and adjusting accordingly, to reduce stress and improve comfort.

Connectivity capabilities

Stay up-to-date on all your patients’ medical history with a system that can be connected to electronic healthcare records and hospital information systems. Note: This technology is equipped for future updates and upgrades.

Touchscreen display

10.4“ color display touchscreen helps caregivers streamline information and control the baby’s environment, while making important information readily available to eager family members; contributing to the personalized patient and family-friendly care environment.

Hands-Free Alarm Silence

With the wave of a hand, clinicians can quickly silence alarms, making it easier to provide immediate care, while maintaining a calm, soothing environment for the baby.
