GUILFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hyperfine, Inc. (Nasdaq: HYPR), the groundbreaking health technology company that has redefined brain imaging with the first FDA-cleared portable magnetic resonance (MR) brain imaging system—the Swoop® system—today announced it has entered into a distribution agreement with Radiosurgery Global, Ltd. to develop the market in India. The distribution agreement also includes the countries of Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore through future expansion, offering Hyperfine, Inc. a significantly increased presence in Asia.

The clinical value of the Swoop® system is applicable globally as Hyperfine, Inc. aims to expand overall access and availability of MRI. In India, where there are fewer than 5,000 MRI scanners for a population exceeding 1.4 billion (approximately 3.5 MRI scanners per million inhabitants as compared to 38 per million in the U.S.), there is a growing need for specialized healthcare facilities and advanced diagnostic tools due to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like stroke and brain tumors. The current healthcare infrastructure, particularly in critical care and emergency settings, is under-equipped, with only fifteen percent of existing trauma centers having MRI capabilities. This gap highlights a substantial opportunity for introducing portable MR brain imaging systems that can meaningfully improve adult and pediatric care in urban and remote sites of care.

“Expanding commercially to Asia with a focus on India is an important element of our international strategy. We have begun preparing for the regulatory approval process through the CDSCO and are excited to partner with an experienced and capable group like Radiosurgery Global, Ltd. to drive commercial impact in 2025 and beyond,” said Maria Sainz, President and CEO of Hyperfine, Inc. “We believe that by expanding into global markets, we are not only revolutionizing healthcare delivery but also significantly impacting patient outcomes. We are committed to leveraging our expertise and partnerships to drive positive change in global brain health.”
