"NoMoCo products allow us to comfortably secure our subjects' heads for scanning, and greatly reduce the amount of data lost to motion artifacts. More importantly, the pillows increase comfort and encourage subjects to adopt a relaxed posture when participating in functional MRI scans. The various pillows also help to accommodate different head shapes and sizes."

"We have used the NoMoCo pillow for our Diffusion Tensor Imaging experiments at the Radiology Imaging Laboratories. We started our project without the pillows and noticed patient discomfort associated with table vibration due to specifics of our imaging protocol. We acquired the NoMoCo pillow and there was considerable patient satisfaction and improvement in comfort. In addition, support and follow up from the vendor have been exceptional, with prompt and professional response and resolution of any questions or issues."

"I have used the NoMoCo pillow to help increase comfort and reduce motion in child, adolescent, and young adult research participants. Comfort and motion are critical design concerns with youth studies. After trying other, less effective techniques, I happily settled on the NoMoCo pillow system. Since then, not only have we seen less motion in our imaging data, but also noticeable improvements in participant comfort with scanning."

"We conduct sleep deprivation studies in older and younger adults. Subject motion in older populations, and in anyone who is sleep deprived, can be a serious problem. We have found that the comfort and stability afforded by the NoMoCo system have dramatically reduced the amount of data lost to excessive motion. In addition, the subjects consistently comment that the pillows are comfortable and our staff find them very easy to use."
