SvetTex Phototherapy Nest

SvetTex Nest is a phototherapy device that creates intensive phototherapy effect for the baby, reduces light exposure to the surrounding area and allows to position baby in any supportive posture and hold in arms. Made of woven fabric from cotton and optical fibers it is soft and breathing.

The SvetTex Nest does not emit light in the ultraviolet and infrared radiation range, reducing the potential risk of skin damage and the potential risk of overheat and fluid loss. The form of the nest and additional cushions offers premature baby any support they need for proper muscles development, during all course of the light therapy.


Parents can also hold, feed and even rock baby without treatment interruption, encouraging parent-infant bonding.

Early treatment of newborn jaundice is the key to healthy children in the future.


Fiberoptic textile

- intensive phototherapy 
- no UV and IR radiation
- "breathing" material
- easy cleaning
- decrease decubitus formation
- reduction of  probability of sepsis development

Double radiation surface

- intensive phototherapy 
- irradiation of body from all sides 

- detachable phototherapy blankets

- non-luminous textile on outer side to reduce exposure of the light to surrounding

Fixation elements

- easy baby supportive positioning
- prevention of excessive abduction 
   and joints rotation
- correct muscle development

Safety "wings"

- eyes protection from light
- hypoallergic natural materials
- "womb" environment creation

Legs support

- protection for the baby’s legs from the light source

-works as womb muscles allowing baby to develop stronger muscles by pushing up against walls during movement

Extra cuttions

- securing baby in the right supportive position

- impede natural movements, such as grasping hands together, sucking fingers or holding onto bedding

Supportive positioning

For proper growth and decubitus prevention preterm infant should be repositioned each 2 hours. Additional cushions and wing’s with belts of SvetTex Nest are helpful in securing baby in the right supportive position.

Supine position

- easy to observe the baby and provide nursing care 

- if the baby is maintained in a supine, midline position then gravitational pressure is more evenly distributed, leading to a more rounded head shape

- the position is recommended to reduce the risk if sudden infant death syndrome

Prone position

- improves oxygenation, ventilation (higher tidal volumes) and lung compliance
- mattress surface bracing the chest wall and compensating for weak muscles
- gastro-oesophageal reflux is reduced and gastric emptying is optimised
- lead to an improved sleep state
- heat loss is minimised and metabolic rate is reduced
- lower levels of apnoea of prematurity
- hand to mouth behaviours is encouraged
- reduce the distress levels of babies withdrawing from narcotics

Lateral position

- minimises hip and shoulder abduction and rotation

- allows the baby to lie in a flexed position, closest to the foetal position maintained in the womb
- gravity tends to draw the arms and legs towards the midline
- beneficial for self comfort and fine motor - skill development as the baby can easily hold its own hands and explore its face, body and surroundings
- babies often feel more secure and able to self-regulate
- right lateral position increases gastric emptying, as the stomach empties to the right and is aided by gravity
- left lateral position reduces gastric reflux
