    Abstract

    Of all babies born, only a small percentage is premature but this small percentage accounts for a large portion of infant deaths [3]. Training for health risk assessment is one of the factors that might help in lowering the mortality of premature neonates. Designing tools that support this type of training improves the safety of the premature neonates at risk. The topic of this paper is the design and implementation of arm movement and muscle tone simulation in a premature neonate simulator that can be used for team training of gyneacology emergency response teams.
