Solution Overview & Benefits

Phototherapy is the most common treatment for reducing high bilirubin levels that cause jaundice in newborns. The MTTS Firefly is a state-of-the-art phototherapy device designed for effective treatment of neonatal jaundice. Developed in collaboration with Design that Matters (Massachusetts, USA), and East Meets West Foundation (California, USA), the machine features intuitive design, double-sided lighting, compact size, user-friendly control panel, and removable single-infant bassinet. Firefly is designed to treat newborn jaundice in the mother’s room – the best way to support mother-child bonding and breastfeeding. Clinical evaluations indicate that Firefly’s double-sided design reduces total treatment time by 40% on a typical patient compared to single-sided LED phototherapy, allowing earlier discharge from the hospital, lowering incidence of newborn infection and freeing resources to treat more infants.

History & Development

MTTS was established in 2004 with the goal of delivering innovative, cost-effective solutions for newborns in need of intensive medical care. MTTS offers a comprehensive suite of technologies for neonatal care, from CPAP machines that treat respiratory distress syndrome to phototherapy machines that treat neonatal jaundice. These devices help healthcare professionals to deliver a better quality of healthcare to a growing number of patients, and at a lower cost.
