Various studies have confirmed that our environment can greatly contribute to our well being and that a positive state of mind can greatly enhance a patient's speed of healing.
The Relax & View® Video Relaxation System is a unique product that helps to relieve the claustrophobia, stress and boredom often associated with having an MRI Scan.
The System was designed, and built in the UK to provide a complete audio visual experience. This helps to relieve the problems associated with the MR environment and to enhance the patients feeling of well being. This also has a beneficial effect for staff.
Reduced Stress Levels lead to:
- A relaxed and therefore co-operative patient.
- In many cases no need for sedation.
- Faster throughput of patients.
- In children the relief of boredom, with all its associated problems.
This unit is:
- CE marked.
- Compatible with systems up to and including 3 Tesla.
The use of advanced fibre optic technology for the delivery of the signal to the shielded screen enclosure ensures an artefact free scan under all conditions.
The displayed image can be inverted and or reversed, so that no matter the orientation of the patient in the scanner, or the mirror configuration, the patient will always view the displayed image in its correct orientation.
The audio side can be either connected in through the scanner's audio system (if fitted) or through our PureSound Audio System.
Relax & View® Video Relaxation System is easily installed in existing MRI facilities without the need to ramp the magnet down.
It is also possible to supply a monitor with suitable mounting bracket to go in the patient waiting area which allows those waiting to watch the same DVD as being shown in the scan room.
Functional Imaging: MR6300/fMRITop
The functional imaging option was designed following requests, to allow for a high resolution (1920x1080) image using a digital (DVI-D) interface to be displayed on the 24” screen. This has the advantage over projection systems that the patient can be seen at all times and also as the unit is fixed to the back wall no floor space is taken up. Please note: Neither the laptop/PC nor the functional imaging software is supplied by us, and that the laptop/PC must have a DVI-D output on it.
