To this day the causes of infantile colic are still unknown. Despite the fact that the condition is short lived, parents often struggle to deal with the frequent and loud outbursts of crying caused by this condition.
‘Mom Too’ is a research service solution, intended to find the cause of infantile colic through design interventions that explore possible various theories and suggestions from doctors studying the condition.
Tools like an air pressurised tummy massager, a back massager, an automated swaddle and an infant carrier can be programmed to perform certain actions by researches. These objects are intended to mimic a mother’s behaviour. They are activated automatically and the data is recorded through a smartphone app.
‘Mom Too’ is a service that helps researchers find the unknown, relieve parental distress and change the perspective of medical community by proposing novel research methods.
