Spectral qualities of the light source used (wavelength range and peak)
Intensity of the light (irradiance)
Distance between the light and the infant’s skin
Body surface area exposed by the irradiated field or ‘footprint’

The Skylife Phototherapy System was engineered with Spectral Power Treatment™ which provides a narrow bandwidth of light between 430-475nm to most closely match the bilirubin absorption spectrum for effective jaundice treatment.
Skylife Phototherapy System units allow the clinicians to choose between three levels of irradiance for optimal control for the care of the neonates.
- Low 30 ± 5 μW/cm²/nm
- High 45 ± 10 μW/cm²/nm
- Very High >55 μW/cm²/nm
Introducing the Skylife Light Array™ that creates the ideal light in an under baby system which brings the light close to the baby, increasing the irradiance for effective treatment.
The Skylife Light Array creates 40% body surface coverage with effective, uniform light. Skylife has a large irradiated field or footprint of 119in² (769cm²).
Based on the body surface coverage of current phototherapy devices, obtaining 40% body surface area coverage would require combining the use of multiple devices. The Skylife Phototherapy System provides optimal irradiance through Spectral Power Treatment and Skylife Light Array which mitigates the need for multiple devices.
Reducing the number of devices not only reduces hospital costs but also reduces the amount of obstructions during care.
Skylife Cloud Swaddle™ was designed with patient safety at the forefront. Each Skylife Cloud Swaddle safely holds babies and provides access to the patients PICC and umbilical lines by utilizing custom designed swaddle access windows. Each Skylife Cloud Swaddle is a disposable single use item which is replaced every 24 hours of treatment or if soiled.
