MRI scans for newborn 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, anesthesia and pediatric radiology.
The BabyFix Cocoon accomplishes Ideal conditions for a safe and careful examination procedure for newborn babies in the MRI scanner.
Lay the newborn baby on the positioning aid.
Close the BabyFix Cocoon tightly.
Holding and breastfeeding is possible in the positioning aid.
Compatible with all common head coils.
In addition to the deployment of the BabyFix Cocoon for feed-and-sleep MRIs for newborn patients taking place under the responsibility of neonatologists, the anesthetists also repeatedly positioned sedated infants (with a body weight of up to approximately 5 kg) in the BabyFix Cocoon in order to test the practicality and (heat) insulation effect. In the cases I am aware of, the baby was positioned without any problems, sometimes with an additional neck role, with no vacuum being created in most cases. Neither cooling nor overheating occurred. All staff members found the BabyFix Cocoon helpful and practical.Anesthetist
