Two hour meters monitor the therapy and the total time the BiliBed has been used during hyperbilirubinemia treatment. Highly effective - The BiliBed is equipped with a blue fluorescent tube. The light from the tube is precisely directed and set up at the minimum required distance from the baby, ensuring high light efficiency and outstanding therapeutic results.
