Abstract: Hyperbilirubinemia is a disease that is often experienced by infants in the first life span. The natural treatment is to give treatment to get sunlight. But, the sunlight naturally is not always available for a full day, so a safe treatment is to provide phototherapy treatment using light with a specific wavelength. However, the practice is generally done manually and needs to be monitored by medical personnel for the intensity of the light depending on the amount of total serum bilirubin levels in the infants’ body. With the device made in this study, the placement of the distance between lamp and baby can do automatically, it provides efficiency in the procedures for treatment and also for medical personnel.
