From February 13 to July 13, 2017, the student Yolande Ebude of the ENSP of Yaoundé did an academic internship at CURES for a period of five months.
The work that was submitted to the student Nicolas Mbele Ndzana consisted of the design and realization of the electrical part of a neonatal incubator. This work is a continuation of Francis Jiokeng’s Kenne engineering dissertation in 2015. Nicolas then identified the limits of the circuit proposed by his predecessor. He first presented the specifics of premature neonates and neonatal incubators.
To answer the problem, he methodically sized, simulated and realized all the components of the electrical part. The results obtained give with an acceptable accuracy the values of the measurements of temperature and relative humidity. Adequate visual and sound signaling allows us to follow in real time the evolution of the parameters of this neonatal incubator. The cost of implementing the incubator was estimated at XAF 4,160,730, about two million less than the average cost of current neonatal incubators.
