Preterm babies often suffer from apneas. In low-resource settings where nurses are few, these apneas can often go unnoticed or detected late, which could lead to irreversible injury to the newborn. APNEBOOT is a shoe-shaped apnea monitor which alerts in the event of an apnea. In the event of apnea, it also stimulates the foot which could be life-saving in the case of central apneas and absence of a caretaker.
