The new BiliSoft LED Phototherapy System from GE Healthcare is a blue LED and fiber optic-based technology for the treatment of jaundice in newborns.

The product responds to clinical guidelines at the same time it promotes the natural developmental care of newborns. BiliSoft can deliver phototherapy anywhere—in the neonatal ICU, pediatrics, well baby nursery, or at home. The system can be used in any environment—in a radiant warmer, incubator, bassinet, crib, or in a caregiver’s arms.

BiliSoft utilizes six blue LEDs with a soft large light pad, in two sizes, for use with premature infants or full-term babies. A new soft, flexible fiber optic light pad allows the swaddling, or wrapping, of full-term babies to further enable feeding and holding during jaundice treatment.
