Vac-Lok™ Cushions create a rigid and secure support around the patient when a vacuum is drawn through a self-sealing quick-release valve.
Thermoplastic breast positioning is primarily intended to hold the breast up and away from the chest wall, reducing both skin folds and unwanted radiation dose into the patient's lung and heart.
The Chabner XRT® Radiation Bra provides optimal breast support during simulation, planning and radiation treatment, including proton.
The innovative C-Qual M supine breastboard brings a new level of patient comfort and diagnostic compatibility to CIVCO Radiotherapy's breast and thorax positioning solutions. The board is made from an image-friendly, non-ferrous material compatible with multiple treatment imaging modalities.
The carbon fiber C-Qual Breastboard is lightweight, designed for patient comfort and features a low-attenuating IGRT treatment zone. The C-Qual's advanced features bring efficiencies to breast setup and treatment.
The Evolve Breastboard is a lightweight solution that allows quick and simple indexing of many Wing Boards™ which aids in reproducibility without sacrificing patient comfort.
The innovative Monarch Overhead Arm Positioner enhances patient comfort and positioning on the C-Qual and C-Qual M Breastboards, but also operates as an indexable, stand-alone device.
The MT-350 Breastboard combines reproducible breast positioning with efficient, comfortable patient setups. Its lightweight construction including carbon fiber provides ease-of-use with repeatable support.
New Horizon Prone Breastboard provides comfortable, reproducible patient positioning for prone breast treatments.
The Posirest-2 Arm Support is designed to create proper and comfortable upper extremity positioning.
The Pro Wing Board features Individual Hand Grips that are easily adjustable for customized placement of each hand/arm. A gel headrest that is indexable in eight positions is included with the Wing Board. The Wing Board is indexable and may be used as a stand-alone device.
The ThermFix Immobilization System uses a single sheet of thermoplastic that forms over the breast, thorax, abdomen, hip, or pelvis to aid patient positioning and reproducibility. The ThermFix Bars easily attach and index to the TotalRT™ All in One Platform or Universal Couchtop™ and provide 1 cm indexing.
The Thorawedge is a unique positioning device allowing the patient to incline at multiple fixed angles.
The treatment brassiere positions the ipsilateral breast into a reproducible shape while moving the contralateral breast away from the beam. A complete library of bras is available.
Wing Boards™ are constructed of durable, lightweight ABS and provide arms-up patient comfort and support.
