Engineering students create blanket to treat infants with jaundice

Three Michigan State University engineering students have created a fiber-optic light blanket to treat infants with jaundice.
About 60% of infants are born with yellowing of the skin and eyes.

Patients are treated with light, either in an incubator or on a pad.

The fiber-optic blanket is covered in a breathable plastic that can be used in a hospital setting.

It slips inside an infant's blanket, so the mother can hold the child while it receives light treatment.
