Firefly Phototherapy

A highly effective phototherapy device designed for treatment of neonatal jaundice.

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.
