    1. The Extreme team used this insight to inform their decisions about the product’s direction. Instead of a cheaper incubator (the initial concept, but likely ineffective given the evidence) they decided to design something to help babies at home: a portable incubator, much like a tiny, heated sleeping bag, which they named Embrace.

      Embrace started in 2011 and shut down in 2016 after merging with thrive networks http://embraceglobal.org/update-embrace-thrive-networks/

      Last July, Embrace merged with Thrive Networks, an international NGO pioneering evidence-based programs and technologies in health, water and sanitation, and education for underserved populations since 1988. Together across Thrive Networks’ Newborn Health Programs, our goal has been to reduce the unacceptably high newborn mortality rates in countries around the world, and we are proud to announce the success of a number of our programs reaching completion in India, Benin, Uganda and the Philippines during the third quarter of 2016.

      Thrive Networks is currently working to re-imagine its health programs to best address mothers’ and babies’ needs in the changing health landscape, incorporating its innovative devices and educational programs, including Embrace programs. For example, Thrive Networks’ Newborn Health program is piloting a program in Vietnam for the Bilistick device, an innovative diagnostic tool for neonatal jaundice detection. While Thrive Networks’ current plans do not incorporate the Embrace warmer, which will continue to be manufactured by Phoenix Medical Systems in India and distributed by Phoenix and Embrace Innovations, they do see promise for the warmer as their programs evolve.

      Thank you so much for your support over the years of our efforts to improve healthcare in low-resource settings to help vulnerable newborns survive and thrive. We look forward to updating you on our programs as well as the next stages of our journey to improve health for babies and the world’s underserved.

      If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at info@thrivenetworks.org.

      With gratitude,

      The Embrace Team of Thrive Networks
