Embrace® Nest bag for WarmPak™, part of Embrace Infant Warmer starter kit designed by Embrace® Innovations, Inc and made by Phoenix Medical Systems (P) Ltd, 2017

The Embrace® Nest infant warming set is a low-cost solution to help premature and low-birth weight babies regulate their temperature. Reheatable wax packs give heat for up to four hours and are placed within a reusable and cleanable sleeping bag, the BabyWrap™. With a clear window for monitoring, the sleeping bag has an indicator when the wax packs should be recharged.

In 2008, four Stanford University students came up with the design as part of their studies. They were challenged to create an incubator 1% of the cost of a traditional one, which in the United States costs $20,000. Following clinical trials, the Embrace® Nest was launched in 2011 in India, where it is widely used.
