Abstract

A skin temperature measuring mattress for infant care warmer is disclosed. The infant is placed over the mattress inside the infant care warmer and the surface of the mattress contacting the infant's skin measures the skin temperature. The measured temperature is used as a control signal for controlling the heat output from the heater by means of micro-controller based feedback system.

SKIN TEMPERATURE MEASURING MATTRESS FOR INFANT CARE WARMERS

BACKGROUND

 

The present disclosure relates generally to infant care warmers and more particularly to skin temperature measuring mattress for infant care warmers.

Currently, the infant’s skin temperature inside the infant care warmer is measured by means of thermistor type sensor at a single point contact on the skin.

The temperature at outer surface of skin may vary from one point contact to another.  There is an improvement opportunity in temperature measurement technique by measuring temperature over a large surface of baby’s skin. There are instances noticed where the temperature measurement sensor is not placed in proper contact with baby’s skin that results in erroneous functioning of heater of warmer. Also, use error leads to exposing temperature sensor to heat radiation from heater that can result in erroneous measurement

 

Accurate measurement of body temperature is highly prescribed for optimized heat output from the heater

It would be desirable to have an efficient technique for measuring infant’s skin temperature inside the infant care warmer.
