Project LILCA - Little Care

From May 2021 we start our start-up project in the incubation program All for INNovators, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Wielkopolska Regional Operational Programme for 2014-2020.

In the area of new medical technologies, experts from Concordia Design and Lab150 will support the LILCA-Little Care project in terms of content, practice and infrastructure, providing access to machinery park, prototyping facilities and other specialist infrastructure. They will also assist us in creating an effective strategy for bringing an innovative product to market.

Project funding: 218,000 PLN

Project duration: 24 months

Why was the LILCA project created?

Conscious care of infants is important to ensure the correct motor development of the baby.

An early assessment of an infant, already in the first weeks of life, by a paediatric physiotherapist would allow a diagnosis of possible disorders, such as position asymmetry or muscle tension disorders. A professional diagnosis is an opportunity to implement quickly the appropriate therapy.

Pillows designed by us will be a professional help for parents in everyday care for the correct position of the baby’s body, which will reduce possible problems in the further development of the baby.

Our mission

The mission of the LILCA – Little Care project is to:

  • build awareness among parents about the correct motor development of infants,
  • create an innovative product – two ergonomic pillows supporting the positioning of the baby’s body.

The product will help parents with placing their infants in the healthiest positions and will support the development of correct functional movement patterns in the first months of life.

The project assumes the realisation of 6 main objectives:

chat

Introduce the User-centered design – design focused on the user and his needs

schape

Design ergonomic shape of pillows to maintain baby’s body in healthy positions

CNC

Realise a series of pillow prototypes using CNC technology

Create a new brand

launch

Launch the innovation on the national and European market

Ergonomic pillows

We aim to create professional and certified pillows for infants to support their healthy body alignment and correct leg positions.

The pillows will be dedicated to parents of infants from 0 to 3 months of age, and to paediatric physiotherapists and orthopaedists who will be able to use them during therapy.

The pillows can be used

  • in all infants preventively to take care of their correct body alignment and build healthy functional movement patterns,
  • in infants diagnosed with muscular tone disorders, postural asymmetry, hip dysplasia, spina bifida.

The primary purpose of the pillows will be:

Project support

Are you a parent of a baby between 0 and 3 months of age?
Would you like to help us develop an innovative product?

We would be grateful if you would complete the following questionnaire on the measurement of your baby. The survey is anonymous.

The collected information will allow us to design the right size and shape of pillows.
