Stamford MRI Department – Baby Wrap & Feed

North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, have just taken delivery of the new baby wrap and feed from Wolverson X-Ray.

This device is one of many products designed by Pearl Technology for MRI and other busy imaging departments to improve image quality and patient comfort in whilst saving costs.

MRI scans for new-born babies are not an everyday occurrence and pose special challenges for everyone involved due to the difficulty of achieving safe and stable positioning. To meet the high demands of this procedure, the BabyFix Cocoon was developed in close collaboration with experts from the fields of neonatology, anaesthesia and paediatric radiology.

The BabyFix Cocoon accomplishes ideal conditions for a safe and careful examination procedure for new-born babies in the MRI scanner offering improved image quality and excellent hygiene. The slim design and the separate head and body fixation enable the mother to continue breastfeeding, thus facilitating close contact between her and the child during preparation for the scan. Careful, pressure-free positioning with soft, pleasant materials.

The BabyFix Cocoon has proved invaluable in imaging the youngest of our patients. Combined with low-noise scanning sequences this product has increased our imaging success rates, and provides a safe and secure environment that is acceptable to both baby and parent. The BabyFix Cocoon is helping us to reduce the need for general anaesthesia; reducing both the risks and stresses to babies and families.
