Infant in AmnioBed sits on a donut shaped cushion. The fluid directly below the genitals is constantly monitored for stool content and if stool is detected, the computer system automatically flushes the bath fluid and replaces it with fresh warm synthetic amniotic fluid. The fluid in the bath is also continuously circulated through a UV filter that kills 99% of pathogens on every pass. Infant urine in the bath is not a problem as natural amniotic fluid in mother's womb is mostly made of fetal urine.
System will be able to flush out the fluid with new fluid via a sensor in the system
