Abstract

Infant mortality rates due to hypothermia are extremely high in the Q’eros nation of Peru. The purpose of this design research was to develop a garment/wrapping system that will help the infants maintain adequate body temperature to prevent cold related illness/death and at the same time be compatible with Q’eros cultural traditions.
