Phototherapy

 

final-bbcimage001

For more than three decades, phototherapy has been the standard for treating neonatal jaundice. The benefits of utilizing phototherapy devices instead of sunlight include: 24 hour treatment, greater efficacy by narrowing the spectral range to 430-490nm, improved temperature regulation, and the elimination of harmful UV irradiation to the patient from sunlight exposure.

 

 

The BiliBee LED is revolutionizing the phototherapy industry in neonatal jaundice treatment.

  • Compact and lightweight at only 13 oz., the BiliBee LED requires little storage space and is easy for new parents to use
  • Simple design makes training easy
  • Enables patient to be treated in the comfort of their own home which benefits bonding and no need to return to the hospital or be readmitted for treatment
  • Completely maintenance-free, and the battery pack allows for up to 4 hours of portable use

 

DISPOSABLE SHEATHS
The disposable sheaths are used to cover the LED illuminator pad like a sleeve as a barrier between the patient and the LED pad during treatment.

CONTINUOUS OPERATION
The BiliBee can be plugged in for extended use, but also comes equipped with a battery pack which provides an operation time of  four hours.

 

MAINTENANCE FREE
The BiliBee is maintenance free with no moving parts or fiber optic cables, which further reduces hospital or distributor expenses.

WARRANTY
The BiliBee LED Phototherapy System comes with a one-year warranty that can be extended up to five years.

 

CERTIFIED
The system is certified to IEC60601-2-50 “Particular Requirement for the Safety of Infant Phototherapy Equipment.”

COMPACT
Smaller and lighter than fiber optic units, the BiliBee is easier for nursing mothers to use.

 

AT HOME OR ON THE GO, THE BILIBEE PROVIDES INTENSE TREATMENT WHEREVER IT’S NEEDED

So convenient, mother and baby will forget it’s even there!

PORTABLE AND MAINTENANCE FREE

The BiliBee LED pad provides a completely portable and maintenance free system by eliminating the fiber optic cable found on competitors’ phototherapy systems. Treatment is applied by placing the patient on the BiliBee for 24 hours a day until the infant’s bilirubin levels have been effectively lowered to an acceptable level according to AAP guidelines.
