    In April 2014, the IA EMS Alliance purchased a Neo-Mate for the transport of infants that were too small for the Pedi-Mate. Neo-Mate is made by the Ferno company. Per the manufacturer, the Pedi-Mate is rated for patients 10-40 lbs. The Neo-Mate is rated for patients 7-14 lbs. The Neo-Mate secures to the cot in a similar fashion as the Pedi-Mate. The Neo-Mate includes an additional piece of padding, around where the infant's head sits, to provide support for the head.
