By definition, hypothermia occurs when the body’s core temperature falls below 36.5ºC (97.7ºF). The word hypo means “below”, and the word thermia (or thermē in Greek) means “heat.”
Because babies are small, they can very easily become cold (hypothermic). When they become cold, their body burns fat-stores to stay warm. Unfortunately, as a consequence of this the baby doesn’t gain weight, the sugar and oxygen levels in the body drop, the organs are at a serious risk of damage, and the baby can die.
Using Bempu is simple: if the baby’s temperature drops to an unsafe range, the bracelet creates an audio-visual alert by playing a tune and flashing an orange light.
