Ambu has reached an agreement with Ives EEG Solutions LLC to be the exclusive US distributor of its MRI-compatible single-use electroencephalogram (EEG) cup electrodes.
Having a cup electrode that is MRI compatible means the cup electrodes don’t have to be removed from patients during imaging. The product will be available in early 2020.
“We are excited to partner with Ives EEG Solutions LLC. Adding the MRI-compatible single-use cup electrodes to our current portfolio of EEG products fits with our current mission to bring single-use products to patients to reduce risk of cross contamination,” says Ambu president Steven Block in a release. “Our collaboration with Ives is based on a shared goal to enhance patient safety.”
Ives EEG Solutions, based in Newburyport, Mass, was launched in 1995 and develops both proprietary and OEM products for the EEG and sleep markets.
“We are excited for this opportunity to partner with Ambu. Both companies share the same values and vision of providing innovative healthcare solutions to our customers,” Ives president Patrick Phelan says. “We are an ambitious company with inspiring goals. We believe this is the ideal time and the right company to join forces with. Together we hope to reach all hospitals, big and small, to educate them on the benefits associated with using disposable MR/CT-compatible EEG electrodes.”
