You may be seeing a wearable MRI scanner in the not too distant future, so to speak. While this BCI, or brain-computer interface, uses similar properties of an MRI, it also has roots with the Virtual Reality headset, Oculus Rift.
The start-up behind this device is Openwater. The aim is to “to create a wearable to enable us to see the inner workings of the body and brain at high resolution.” In terms of healthcare, this would streamline imaging scans on a massive level, but there are some other ramifications to this device as well, as Futurism points out in their article.
At Sound Imaging, we are always excited to see what innovators come up with next. We also aim to innovate MRI patient care with our line of MRI accessories. Explore our SAMM Systems, the MRI camera, for safety options; take a look at MRI Stereo and MRI Visors, for patient comfort solutions.
