Clinical versatility and comfort.

Awarded Best New Radiology Device of 2019, AIR™ Coils are the foundation of a simply better MR experience. The engineering breakthrough at the heart of our AIR™ Coils allowed us to create the industry’s first truly lightweight, flexible design, laying the groundwork for greater positioning freedom and a comfortable patient experience. 

Experience versatility

    • ≥ 60% lighter design compared to previous generations of conventional coil technology
    • Clearly marked guides
    • Flexible, ultra-low profile design to fit all sizes, shapes and ages
    • Highest channel count and coverage in the industry
    • No snapping or locking
    • Space-saving design

Get closer with adaptive MR

The shape of the coil no longer determines what you can do with it. Wrap it around a knee for a complete knee image. Move it from that knee to an elbow without having to move the patient. Drape it over the torso of a high BMI patient if you need to. With the adaptive AIR™ Coil that is light, form fitting and easy to position, it’s the closest you can get to total positioning freedom with 360-degree coverage.

Like being wrapped in a blanket

We wanted to design a coil that would free patients from the experience of traditional coils by replacing that experience with one that is both comfortable and comforting, like being wrapped in a blanket. AIR™ not only behaves like a blanket, it truly feels like one. Its light weight is evenly distributed without any concentrated points of pressure to help patients feel more at ease. From young or claustrophobic patients to professional athletes, AIR™ comfortably conforms to the size and shape of every patient.

Every time we found ourselves starting to compromise,
we started over

From the very beginning, flexibility and versatility were the standards we measured everything we developed against. That meant we had to rethink all of the interior electronics to come up with a solution that took up less space and worked more efficiently. In the end, we came up with something so fundamentally different than anything else in the industry that there would be no turning back.

DREAM: Flexibility or nothing
From the very beginning, flexibility was the standard we measured everything we developed against. Anything less than a completely flexible coil was considered unacceptable.

INNOVATE: Everything inside had to change
There was simply no room for bulky or lumped components. That meant we had to rethink all of the interior electronics to come up with a solution that took up less space and worked more efficiently.

PROTOTYPE: The breakthrough of getting everything to work together
Our first working prototype was a simple, four-channel coil pieced together completely by hand. Even though it was only a glimmer of what AIR™ would eventually be, once we demonstrated how it worked, its potential captured the imaginations of our peers.

ITERATE: Fine tuning to perfection
After the initial prototype, we challenged ourselves to go one step further by making something that was elegant, yet functional with image quality that could rival, or potentially exceed traditional coils. In the end, we came up with something so fundamentally different than anything else in the industry that there would be no turning back.

This simple loop breaks every mold

It took two separate, but simultaneous research projects to develop the innovative technologies at the heart of AIR™. Together, they consolidate the functionality of the coil for efficiency. This simplified design is the basis for a revolutionary coil that is lighter, offers more flexibility and provides greater coverage.**
  • E-mode electronics
    Its small size is its biggest strength

    Housed within this miniaturized module are some of the most advanced coil electronics ever developed. Our proprietary E-mode electronics reduce current noise, boost linearity and improve tolerance to varying coil loading conditions. It makes the most out of every centimeter to reduce component volume by more than 60 percent.

  • Conductor loop
    Flexibility that's way ahead of the curve

    Sometimes the right material can be the linchpin to a breakthrough innovation. For AIR™, it was the conductor material for the loop. Lightweight and bendable, this series of linked resonators replaces what used to be rigid circuit boards and lumped components. It’s the flexible core of our form-fitting coil design.

It turns out you can out-engineer conventional wisdom

Developing a light, flexible loop is one thing, but finding a way to control loop-to-loop interactions was no small feat of engineering. Because of the low profile and performance of the E-mode electronics module, we were able to place it right at the base of each loop where it can better control the surrounding magnetic and electric fields. This allowed us to break free from critical overlap restrictions and arrange elements closer together.

Get closer to what you need to see

Since the very first MR, coils have been both a bridge and a barrier between radiologists and what they need to see. The flexibility of AIR™ makes it less of a barrier. By bringing the elements closer to the area-of-interest, it improves image quality. It also opens up opportunities to image patient types and anatomies that previously were challenging to image with conventional coil designs.


The transformative way forward

The adaptive AIR™ Coils are the new standard in coil technology. With simply better versatility, comfort, design and innovation, AIR™ is the transformative way forward for MR.
