Abstract

The phototherapy in the medical terminology has been an effective treatment Methodology to treat neonatal jaundice with the exposure of light. The existing phototherapy device to cure jaundice in neonates uses fluorescent lamp, halogen lamp etc. The need for a new technology arises to fulfill certain drawbacks in the current technology which includes high energy consumption [100 Watts] and it costs around Rs.23000. The basic idea behind this project is to develop a low cost which costs around Rs.10000 and low power LED based phototherapy unit which consumes 10 Watts to provide uniform light distribution intensity over a specified area of interest, portable and an effective treatment. Using a 455 nm wavelength of blue band light, this device will help to reduce the bilirubin content in the neonates affected with jaundice which is prevailing in every 50-60 percent of new born babies. The photo therapy treatment depends on the intensity of light and its surface area of Exposure.
