This work describes the fabrication of luminous POF fabric device prototype developed for neonatal jaundice. Equipment using blue LEDs and designed POF fabric was conducted, optically characterized. The optical parameters of phototherapy device, like wavelength, light intensity, refer to the commercial equipment. Compared with the conventional equipment, our phototherapy prototype presents large and uniform area of irradiation, simplicity and low values of weight, no heating production and low cost. Therefore, the new device is candidate to systematic applications in phototherapy treatments.
