The Leicester Incubator Measure should be your instrument of choice when needing to take an ultra- accurate measurement of infants in Special Care and Intensive Care Wards. It is the latest in the range of growth measurement devices designed by the UK’s Child Growth Foundation – now world famous for the production of simple, effective yet inexpensive anthropometric metric equipment.
The Leicester Incubator Measure is a lightweight, plastic calliper-type device, calibrated to 44cms, with a locking catch to guarantee that the length of an infant can be recorded to millimetre precision. It is supplied with a separate baseplate on which to position the equipment and a correx box for transportation and storagei. The Measure has passed EN71 testing and complies with Medical Device Regulations 2002 [Class I]. Both the instrument and box can be safely cleaned with standard ward disinfectants.
