UCF Alumni Developing Self-Heating Blankets to Save Babies

Saturday, August 18, 2018

Two University of Central Florida (UCF) alumni are in the process of developing a self-heating blanket that will protect infants from hypothermia in low- and middle-income regions, increasing their chances of survival. The duo has received a grant of more than $75,000 to continue their development of a non-electric blanket, which is made entirely of ecofriendly and nontoxic materials and heats independent of any outside source.
