Using the Sun for Phototherapy
We are now starting a student project at NTNU where a physics student will investigate how we could best utilize sunlight as phototherapy for jaundiced newborn. The results of this project could become extremely important in areas where the phototherapeutic devices in today’s market are too expensive or require too much infrastructure to function.
Optimizing treatment of jaundice using sunlight could thus give many poor people the ability to treat their newborn’s jaundice.
