hrush is a type of yeast infection that commonly affects babies, causing many new mothers to suffer painful breastfeeding. Desert Platforms is developing an innovative wearable phototherapy device that allows breastfeeding mothers to treat thrush discreetly and easily. By using blue light to inactivate the fungus that causes thrush, the device will bypass the need for topical ointments and provide faster pain reduction for women.
