IRADIMED CORPORATION Announces FDA 510(k) Clearance of MRI Compatible Patient Vital Signs Monitor
Winter Springs, Florida, October 26, 2017 – IRADIMED CORPORATION (NASDAQ:IRMD), today announced FDA 510(k) clearance of its 3880 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (“MRI”) compatible patient vital signs monitoring system.
“We are excited to announce receipt of FDA 510(k) clearance and launch our revolutionary MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system to U.S. customers. The Iradimed 3880 monitor’s compact non-magnetic design positions Iradimed as the only company in the world with a MRI compatible patient monitor that can be used to transport patients from the critical care departments of hospitals to the MRI scanner room and back to critical care without an interruption in vital signs monitoring. It has an easy-to-use design and unique wireless tablet remote control that allows for the effective communication of vital signs information to clinicians,” said Roger Susi, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
The IRADIMED 3880 introduces a compact and lightweight design to the MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring market, facilitating the transportation of patients from their critical care unit, to the MRI and back, resulting in increased patient safety through uninterrupted vital signs monitoring and decreasing the amount of time critically ill patients are away from critical care units. It is the smallest, most portable MRI monitor on the market.
