Infant Brain Imaging Chair

MEG brain scanners need the patient to sit still while scanning which is hard task when your scanning infants. This design is a lift and chair system with the goal of implementing a better method of positioning and immobilizing an infant while maximizing the available good baby time (when they arent upset). The Bi-directional lift allows for the baby to be placed in the chair away from the machine and then be pushed back and up into the brain imaging scanner with a single push of the foot. The contoured chair utilizes a bib like system with a single point of adjustment that tightens the whole harness securing the baby in place.
