In most of today’s MR suites, patient flow is a key factor in reducing the risk of delays, and aborted or repeated scans. However, patient anxiety can pose a big challenge to achieving successful patient flow.By observing everyday life of MR technologists, we see that they often need to spend more time than scheduled making a patient comfortable enough to undergo a scan. To successfully attend to the needs of anxious patients, MR technologists need tools that will help shifting patient focus to something other than the examination.

nordicComfortSolution provides a tool that can help achieve this goal. It aims to reduce stress and anxi-ety by providing a calming environment for patients through a variety of media content options. Its main objective is to reduce number of delayed, aborted and repeated scans, and to help limit the need for sedation in pediatric patients.

nordicComfortSolution package consists of NNL 40” 4K InroomViewingDevice and our newly developed media player nordicComfortPlayer. nordicComfortPlayer runs on touch interface device and contains separate media libraries of video and audio files. The display window allows the viewer to see the image coming from the InroomViewingDevice’s built-in patient camera, and it also integrates simple and smart controls of patient monitor orientation.

nordicComfortSolution was built with technologists and radiologists working conditions in mind. It has a user-friendly, intuitive interface that enables remote control of the patient entertainment system. There is no longer need for external media players, splitters, cables and extra monitors. With a simple click of a button you can select and present your media content to a patient.
