Incubator Features

The GE Giraffe OmniBed is a richly-featured neonatal microenvironment that combines the thermal advantages of a double-walled incubator with the access advantages of an open bed radiant warmer. Conversion between an incubator and an open bed warmer happens in seconds with a touch of a button. In either open or closed bed operation, the GE OmniBed provides precise microprocessor-controlled thermal support.

Stress on the infant, staff, and family members is reduced by eliminating the need to transfer the baby between incubators and warmers. Less equipment is now required for caregiving, cleaning, service, and storage. The Giraffe pioneered developmentally appropriate features including the patented Baby Susan rotating mattress and internal bed tilt. This feature enhances productivity by allowing the caregiver to properly position the baby for clinical procedures and to effortlessly facilitate family bonding. The GE OmniBed Incubator combines two traditional infant care products in one. A fully-featured Giraffe OmniBed incubator and a radiant warmer in one. Protects from heat loss while the bi-directional maintains thermal stability. An infant receives uniform heat regardless of position. Looking for a newer model?

Refurbished GE Omnibed

Soma Tech Intl offers Refurbished GE Giraffe Omnibed incubators and infant warmers up to 50% below OEM prices with the same service and warranty as new. Soma Tech Intl has a dedicated team of in-house biomedical engineers that technically and cosmetically refurbish our products. Each of our biomedical engineers is certified for the specific product they are working on. When the Giraffe comes into our facility, they are fully tested and calibrated back to OEM specifications. If necessary, parts are replaced to get the OmniBed incubator to function the way it did when it originally left the manufacturer. Once the Omnibed Incubator is working the way it should, it’s cleaned and undergoes a special cosmetic restoration process. Now that the OmniBed functioning properly, this cosmetic restoration process will make it look new. After the cosmetic restoration, the Giraffe then undergoes a final Quality Control test before being labeled patient-ready. Once the GE Giraffe is patient-ready, it is packaged up and ready for shipment. If you have medical equipment you would like to sell to Soma, send us a message here!
