The Lion incubator was the first incubator to automatically regulate temperature and airflow. It was invented by Alexandre Lion and patented in1889. Lion founded l'Oeuvre maternelle des couveuses d'enfants to promote the invention. The organization had storefronts in cities across France that displayed the incubators in-use and charged admittance in order to fund the care of the infants.
Budin and Stephane Tanier were obstetricians by training, but contributed to the field of pediatrics in various ways, including the design of an incubator.
