The Nanny breathing monitor is certified as a medical device in Japan according to local standards. It is used in approximately 150 hospital facilities.
Nanny is mainly used in clinical practice:
“Every room is comfortably equipped so the mother can carry out all activities here – sleep, eat, bathe. We also have a comfortable sofa for the father. There is a tablet by the bed, where the mother can learn all about taking care of her baby and how to operate and use individual devices and aids in the room. We also have Nanny breathing monitors, which we use for mum’s peace of mind and to prevent sudden infant death syndrome,” says Dr. Atsuyuki Oota, Head of the Oota Ladies Clinic.
He has also encountered several cases of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in his recent practice – in one case, the mother left the child when she went to pick up an older sibling from the bus, in the second case the baby died when the mother shared the bed with her baby.
“Mothers sleeping with children in one bed is very common in Japan, but young families are following new trends, and are increasingly ensuring babies have their own cot, which is the safest for the child,” adds Dr. Oota.
