“We are very expectant [of neoGuard]. I tell you. It’s very good. Because most accidents that occur in the clinic come because the health worker doesn’t know… If we detect early it can be helpful”
– Alice, community health worker, Uganda
“This is a potential life saving product for the most vulnerable of our society”
– Sarah Shell, investor
“My baby was born early and without the help of people who were specialized she might not have made it. This will help the nurses monitor babies born early who may not have proper equipment available. It will save lives.”
– Angela K., investor
“Sometimes it is 150 babies for you alone… it makes us uneffective. It commonly encroaches on the monitoring, because by the time you start on the first baby, when you reach the last baby you may not find the last baby surviving.”
– Damalie, Senior Neonatal Nurse, Uganda
