August 17, 2016 — Aspect Imaging, a life-science company, and frog, a global design and strategy firm, have joined forces to create easy-to-use and patient-friendly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems.

The immersive research performed for the WristView, a dedicated hand and wrist MRI system, and the Embrace Neonatal System, a newborn baby scanner, took place in clinical settings, including Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU), in order to map workflow and identify ways to optimize the units for the specific contexts where they are used.

The Embrace Neonatal System is designed to provide comfort and safety for the baby, while also allowing easy integration into the clinical and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit environment and workflow.

Placed inside the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of a hospital, the Embrace Neonatal System preps and scans newborn babies in less than an hour without the baby having to leave the NICU. The system includes everything necessary to provide continuous scanning and monitoring, and does not require any additional medical equipment. In addition, the unit does not emit any external noise or energy and operates in any stable room temperature environment, with no need to install the system in a dedicated, shielded MRI facility.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared and CE-approved WristView MRI System is a dedicated hand and wrist MRI system, which ensures a non-claustrophobic, stress-free patient experience, available at a fraction of the price of a conventional MRI system. The system is safe and does not require a specially shielded room or cooling systems. It provides results that can be easily accessed by doctors across a broad range of fields, and can be used in medical facilities that would not normally have the budget or the specialized staff required to operate a full-body MRI scan.
