Giving grieving families the gift of time

CuddleCot and CuddleBlanket

Mobile and versatile mortuary cooling

The CuddleCot cooling cot and the CuddleBlanket mortuary blanket provide grieving families an opportunity to spend time with their loved ones without having to cool the whole room.

Some families wish to spend time with their loved ones either at home, in the hospice or at the hospital, rather than at a funeral home.

The portable CuddleCot and CuddleBlanket allow families to cool a baby who has died, child or adult, thereby preserving their appearance, condition and dignity.

A CuddleCot is a small, portable, lightweight unit that enables families experiencing the loss of their baby at any age or gestation to spend more time with them and enables more time to create memories. 

The unit is connected to a hose and mat. The baby is placed on top of the mat which is continually cooled and direct contact with the mat ensures that baby remains cool too. 

The mat can be placed in any setting to suit the family and where they would like their baby to be. The mat is available in two sizes to suit premature babies and older babies. The mat can be placed in any Moses basket, cot, bassinet and can be placed in bed with parents or even in their arms. This offers a flexible way to cool baby that is adaptable to the needs of the family. 

Keeping baby cool reduces the time it takes for changes and signs of deterioration to commence. Families can have as long as they wish with their baby and the CuddleCot means they have this option in hospital, at home or at the funeral home.

A CuddleBlanket is a cooling device that can be used with babies who may be too large to utilise the CuddleCot, as well as toddlers and children (as well as adults). 

A CuddleBlanket provides a flexible system to eliminate the need for cold rooms and allow families to spend time with their baby or child in a more comfortable setting. 

The CuddleBlanket is a small machine connected to a hose which is then attached to a large blanket-style mat. This is placed over the top of a baby or child similarly to a duvet and their own blanket/ duvet or duvet cover can be added on top to personalise their bed. 

The CuddleBlanket can be used in many settings including hospitals, at home or at funeral homes. This allows flexible means for families to be with their baby or child.
