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 420-475 nm 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 56.3 - 72.4 μW/cm²/nm
Skylife Phototherapy System introduces the Skylife Light Array™ which provides the highest Spectral Power Treatment on the market. The Skylife Light Array was developed as a bed (known as an underbaby device) to bring the lights as close as possible to the patient which increases the irradiance for effective treatment.
The Skylife Light Array combines optimal distance, 40% body coverage, and light uniformity to prevent decay of light which makes the light irradiance more focused for effective phototherapy. The Skylife Light Array focuses the light on the neonate and mitigates excessive glare. The complete Spectral Power Treatment offered by the Skylife Phototherapy System is engineered to provide an average of 40% neonate body surface coverage (highest coverage on market). Spectral Power Treatment and Skylife Light Array provides an optimized dose of therapy for an efficient decline in serum bilirubin.
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.
