Medical Implant Test System (MITS) for LF Gradient EMC & Heating Tests

MITS Gradient is designed to simulate high-precision low frequency (LF) with user defined sequences for testing heating and electromagnetic compatability (EMC) of medical implants with MRI gradient fields.
The system has been designed to deliver performance exceeding the requirements of the ISO/IEC standard for Active Medical Implant Devices, thereby delivering exposure levels of greater than 120 T/s peak. MITS Gradient EMC will be compatible with EMC test sequences and provide excellent gradient field homogeneity of less than 1% within a cylindrical volume of 260mm by 100mm height.
The rugged construction of Helmholtz coils allows vertical usage and access for evaluations. The test system is calibrated and fully characterized experimentally.
The open user interface allows customized, automated EMC and heating evaluations.
The system is supported by the DASY6 AIMD scanner, from our sister company SPEAG for rapid and high precision field evaluations. However, MITS systems are standalone products and do not require the DASY6NEO scanner.
