Thanks to our friends, new and old, for your support and well wishes during our recent go live. A few quick sentiments as we step forward... 
 
We're a new business with a new class of product that hasn't been seen before. I'll be working diligently with business partners to broach the sometimes controversial topic of infant falls, and to introduce a physical solution for it.  I'll also be attempting to affect recent healthcare practices a bit by introducing an approach based on something other than modified work tasks for hospital staff RNs and patient care technicians.  

It's vital to note that efforts undertaken by maternal exhaustion researchers to address infant falls have been highly admirable, and effective to a significant extent.  However, asking a staff RN to ensure that Patient X, a mom, isn't becoming drowsy with her infant in her arms as the same RN simultaneously juggles with an emergent scenario for Patients Y and Z several rooms away, still isn't an ideal solution.  I look forward to this challenge, and I thank everyone who's rendered support as I've ventured wide-eyed into this incredible problem space.

One may ask how I, an engineering manager and former military law enforcement guy with no healthcare background, can derive the audacity to step into such an unfamiliar set of environs.  As I've built my perspective, I've noted some not-so-intuitive similarities between the staff RNs and my days in the military.  My military police colleagues and I used to venture forward into the night, armed and ready to confront a variety of challenges.  It turns out that RNs do the same thing.  However, instead of deadly side arms, they're armed with impressive educations, a dizzying array of technology, and the very human aspect of truly caring for their patients using their best and biggest weapon: Compassion.  This is the aspect of the solution space that motivates me to help. 
 
I feel blessed with the chance to use knowledge gained over many decades to assist others, who through their own internal drive and professional compassion, strive to make a difference.  I proffer that opportunities don't get much better than this. 

Thanks again for your well wishes and support.  
 
Best regards,

Andy
