Approximately 25% of neonates admitted to Intensive Care require umbilical access to enable delivery of drugs and nutrition. Placement of the catheter is difficult due to the lack of real-time feedback, and confirmation via X-ray is required.


Umbilical Venous Catheterisation (UVC) procedures have been performed the same way since 1950's


The neoNAV is the first medical device of its kind designed specifically for neonates. It's innovation is in its ability to continuously detect and analyse the hearts electrical signals to locate the catheter position at every step during the procedure. 

The neoNAV takes the guess work out of UVC placements, and offers clinicians an easy yet effective method of reducing catheter misplacements in the most vulnerable of newborns
