* Lives Saved is currently estimated at 4% of all babies given the bracelet. LANCET suggests 19-42% of all newborn deaths could be averted by thermal management. With a 3% death rate for all newborns, this comes to ~1% reduction for all newborns (however our bracelet is given to LBWs which have a higher death rate). Our Rajasthan study suggested a 7% of LBW newborns wearing the band were saved. More studies are required for an accurate estimate.

Our work with Unicef
The BEMPU TempWatch is being utilized by 3 UNICEF country offices to support Kangaroo Mother Care and increase newborn survival at the community level. After piloting the intervention in 2017, the Papua New Guinea National Department of Health and UNICEF have partnered to scale the TempWatch (locally renamed "Bebi Kol Kilok") countrywide as a part of the new Saving Lives, Spreading Smiles initiative, supported by the Australian Government. In 2018, UNICEF Zimbabwe and UNICEF Benin have also begun providing the device to vulnerable newborn beneficiaries.

The TempWatch has really helped reduce stress for parents once they leave the controlled environment of the NICU. The TempWatch reassures them that their baby’s temperature is within the normal range.

The TempWatch was very easy to use. We never had to worry about the baby’s temperature dropping as the TempWatch would alarm and let us know when to warm our baby.

We didn't expect to have a preterm baby, so when we did, we were quite overwhelmed. We bought a TempWatch based on a recommendation from our doctor. It made us feel like we had a doctor at home and helped us manage our baby's health very smoothly!
