Premature babies can develop healthier thanks to a Samsung app being developed

The recording is played on speakers located near the incubator where the preemie lives. Research indicates that a baby needs to hear the sound of his/her mother's voice in order for the brain to develop correctly. But for premature babies housed inside an incubator, this becomes very hard to do. And it also provides a comforting connection for the parents, who usually don't get much physical contact with their child in the first weeks and even months after birth.
15 million premature babies were born last year, which means that this app will no doubt touch many lives. There is no word on when it will be released, but you can check out the Voice of Life app by clicking on the video below. And for those people you know who consider things like smartphones and apps to be nothing more than a waste of time, make sure that they see this video too.

I often wondered how much being born premature affected the natural growth process, always assumed it was marginal. However great app, I could definitely see either, tech savy new parents use, or possible implemented into more accommodating hospitals.

You see, Samsung is a huge company and having a small team develop such apps that could be helpful does in no way make Samsung less innovative! So stop with the nonsense bashing!

Thumbs up to Samsung for trying something that is really needed sometimes, but imo, I don't think this does much, even though I am not a researcher or something, this seems more of a thing for the parent to feel less worried about their child than really helping the child develop. But again, this is not my field of expertise, so take this as a pinch of salt.

My mother said I was born premature. Kudos to Samsung.
