MRI-safe pneumatic pad headset
The pad headset has a rip-stop nylon cover over two sponge foam pads, and each of these foam pads have a side opening that is made to rest against the head and direct audio into the ears. The pad headset is designed to connect to twin vinyl tubes that carry music from an MRI patient stereo sound system. There is very little space inside of most MRI head coils. That's because the head coil acts as an antenna to pick up the signals from the brain and must be close to the head to work well. As a result of the very tight space, a conventional style ear-muff style MRI headphone just won't fit inside a head coil, so the Pad Headset serves to deliver the sound right through the foam pads that rest against the ears. Additional sponge foam padding may be used to help position the pad headset if necessary.
