New Product to Bring Comfort to Children Undergoing Imaging Exams

Newmatic Medical introduces kittens and puppies to pediatric imaging rooms

New Product to Bring Comfort to Children Undergoing Imaging Exams

June 15, 2012 — A new product designed to look like kittens and puppies is now available to imaging rooms across the country to help comfort children as they undergo diagnostic imaging exams. Newmatic Medical, a company that specializes in medical imaging products and accessories, launches the new product, BravePal, this month. 

BravePal is a peripheral body covering designed in the form of a kitten or puppy that children can embrace during MRIs, computed tomography (CT) and other imaging exams.  It is placed like a blanket on children, and helps conceal the protective restraints they must wear to limit their movement during imaging procedures.  It also features small pockets for warming devices that mimic the warmth and weight of hands to help comfort children as they undergo imaging procedures.
