What is World Prematurity Day?

Globally, an estimated 15 million babies are born prematurely each year and that number is rising. World Prematurity Day helps to address this concern and improve the situation of preterm babies and their families. On the 17th November, help us to raise awareness of this meaningful day by spreading the word to your colleagues and the parents of neonates.

Dräger ​support World Prematurity Day

We understand the battle that neonates go through and the strength that they put into surviving. We also know how hard our NHS staff work to make this possible. World Prematurity Day was created to raise awareness of preterm birth and we want to say thank you by showing our support of this day.

The Dräger Babyroo has been designed with families in mind.

Find out more about the features of the Babyroo TN300 that support developmental care and focus on familes of the premature baby.


Personalised Family View

The Babyroo® TN300 is a configurable open care warmer with state-of-the-art thermoregulation capabilities as well as advanced integrated technologies to support emergency resuscitation and family-centred care. 

Additional features include displaying the neonates name age and weight, alongside a choice of illustrative graphics to try and make the data of the baby a little less daunting for the parents.


Comfort for all

Babyroo benefits from a safely integrated audio stimulation function, that gives you the opportunity to play mum’s heartbeat or voice to soothe and stabilise the baby when family can’t be there. The friendly device design has a large variable height adjustment range, alongside other elements that allow parents to comfortably get closer to the baby and make families feel welcome when visiting.
