23 Feb GE MRI Scanner for Newborns
A recent BBC article showcases a prototype GE MRI scanner specifically designed for neonatal infants. The MRI is in trials at Royal Hallamshire Hospital in the UK. The video in the article features an infant sling & cart designed and prototyped by Key Tech for use in transporting the baby from an incubator to the MRI scanner. The sling is pre-loaded in the incubator, which a clinician uses to pick up the baby and place them in a cradle loaded on a transport cart. The cart is then rolled from the incubator to the MRI room.
Below are screenshots from the BBC video showing the cart in use. For more information on the Key Tech design, see our portfolio page.
