The BebeWay developed by PATH allows a non-literate community health worker or birth attendant to weigh a newborn using a simple handheld method. The design of this sling-based scale uses color to demarcate low birthweight (LBW) from normal (<2000g, 2000–2499g, and >=2500g), a critical factor in ensuring survival and proper treatment of newborns. In addition to color, the scale uses 3 tactile system for low-light situations. Path notes that each level of birthweight corresponds to a specific dose of gentamicin for bacterial infection. The scale costs about $5 and is reported to work well in emergency situations where multiple babies must be weighed in rapid succession.
