Help bring PAL® to WVU Medicine Children's

The WVU music therapy program wishes to bring the Pacifier Activated Lullaby system to J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital and WVU Medicine Children’s in Morgantown.

The PAL teaches premature babies how to properly coordinate these feeding skills while strengthening needed muscles in the mouth and throat, and can be adjusted to individual needs. The baby sucks on the pacifier, and when he or she does so correctly, the pacifier sends a signal to a speaker that rewards their efforts by playing lullabies. The speaker has an LCD screen so medical personnel and parents can monitor progress. It also has a sealed case for easy cleaning and infection control.
