AIR Technology™ is an industry-leading coil suite designed to truly conform to the human body. It was inspired by the desire to challenge the longtime limitations of traditional rigid coils.
By mimicking universal experiences that bring us all comfort and security, the AIR Technology™ coil suite is both comforting and comfortable. Each coil is lightweight, flexible and just like a blanket, they closely wrap around your patient for incredible image quality.

Every time we found ourselves starting to compromise, we started over
We set our sights on the highest attainable goal for coil design. Lightweight and ultra-flexible. It required a completely
new approach, but with so many possibilities for coil interference, it was easy to fall back into the trap of conventional designs.
Our product development team took a “never compromise” approach to stay focused when faced with a new challenge. And we
didn’t stop until we got it right.
AIR Technology™ Behind the Scenes Film
This simple loop breaks every mold
E-mode electronics Its small size is its biggest strength
Housed within this miniaturized module are some of the most advanced coil electronics ever developed. Our proprietary E-mode electronics reduce current noise, boost linearity and improve tolerance to varying coil loading conditions. It makes the most out of every centimeter to reduce component volume by more than 60 percent.
Conductor loop Flexibility that's way ahead of the curve
Sometimes the right material can be the linchpin to a breakthrough innovation. For AIR Technology™, it was the conductor material for the loop. Lightweight and bendable, this series of linked resonators replaces what used to be rigid circuit boards and lumped components. It’s the flexible core of our form fitting coil design.

Clearly marked guides
Positioning an AIR Technology™ Coil is as easy as putting it on. Once you have it in position, just make sure the anatomy-of-interest falls within the outline on the surface of the coil and you’re ready to image.
No snapping or locking
For most positions, the weight of the coil is enough to hold it in place. It conforms to your patient’s body without the use of any snaps or latches to attach it to the table. Not only is it easier to position, it reduces the number of high-wear components that are prone to breaking over time. For difficult-to-image areas, the straps are readily available to help secure the coil in position.
Each AIR Technology™ Coil is less than half of an inch thick when laid flat. Its low profile leaves more room inside the bore, which gives you more room for larger patients and makes it less claustrophobic for all patients.
AIR Technology™ Coils are easy to store. Just fold them up and tuck them away in the coil cabinet. And their flexible design makes them cross-functional, so you can save even more space by reducing your total number of coils.
Just holding these coils will inspire new ways to image
