The Jefferson Lab's Medium-energy Electron Ion Collider (MEIC) is proposed as a next-generation facility for the study of strong interaction (QCD). Accessing the relevant physics requires a full-acceptance detector with a dedicated small-angle high-resolution detection system capable of covering a wide range of momenta (and charge-to-mass ratios) with respect to the original ion beam. We present a design of such a detection system integrated into the collider's interaction region, in which full acceptance is attained by letting small-angle collision products pass through the nearest elements of the machine final-focusing system for further detection. The proposed design is consistent with the current collider optics and demonstrates an excellent performance in terms of detector acceptance and resolution.
