Lawson Health Research Institute Found Simple Device Improves Care After Kidney Transplantation

The geko™ device, manufactured by Sky Medical Technology Ltd and distributed in Canada by Trudell Healthcare Solutions Inc., is a muscle pump activator that significantly improves blood flow by stimulating the body’s ‘muscle pumps.’

NeoLight, located in Phoenix, Arizona, announced today that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market the Skylife™ portable phototherapy system. The Skylife device delivers a narrow band of high-intensity blue light via blue light emitting diodes to provide treatment for neonatal unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice).

NeoLight Co-Founder and CEO Vivek Kopparthi comments: “We are thrilled to have 510(k) clearance for the Skylife phototherapy system and see this as a key milestone in our mission to reinvent the newborn care space through empathy-driven innovation.”  Kopparthi concluded, “Our approach always starts with one question – what is best for the baby? This question drives everything we do.”

Infant jaundice occurs when a baby’s blood contains an excess of bilirubin, a byproduct of red blood cells. Neonatal jaundice is a common condition, particularly in babies born before 38 weeks gestation (preterm babies). Jaundice in the newborn must be carefully monitored, as although complications are rare, a high bilirubin level associated with severe infant jaundice or inadequately treated jaundice may cause brain damage. Jaundice occurs in approximately 60% of the 4 million neonates born yearly in the United States
