A babygrow that lights up from top to bottom could help thousands of newborns affected by jaundice.
The high-tech satin garment has hundreds of tiny LED lights woven into the fabric. Each battery-powered bulb is no bigger than a matchhead and constantly emits light to help clear the symptoms of jaundice — yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes.
The theory is that this exposure to light breaks down bilirubin, the yellow substance that gives the characteristic jaundice appearance. The bilirubin is then disposed of by the liver.
