Abstract This article describes a novel bioengineering approach to regulating the thermal environment of low-birth-weight infants. The system is based upon implementation of a computerized incubator control algorithm using multisite temperature measurements to control the dynamic thermal surroundings of the convectively intubated infant. Refinements in this system over the past 20 years have led to an expansion of micro- and macroenvironmental monitoring capabilities.
