NEW! Body Pro-Lok Rails-Only Solution for SBRT Treatments
CIVCO's Body Pro-Lok One Rails-Only solution for use with Exact® & IGRT-style couchtops provides a method for utilizing the Body Pro-Lok™ Bridges, Respiratory Belt and accessories without a full platform. This full compatibility allows for customization of setup to meet the patient's needs and creates an ideal workflow between Linac and CT couchtops with EXACT® or IGRT indexing.
Coming Soon! Wide Respiratory Plate and Pearltec Cushion for Body Pro-Lok ONE™ SBRT Compression (510(k) Pending)
Body Pro-Lok ONE provides one simple solution for complex SBRT patient setups featuring the ONEBridge™ with innovative lateral and tilting offset and variable height adjustment capability. The new Wide Respiratory Plate provides abdominal compression and diffuses pressure across the abdominal region, resulting in a more tolerable compression for the patient. A specifically designed Pearltec cushion provides an added dimension of customized comfort by forming to the contours of the patient during inflation, providing an additional level of comfort and contoured pressure between the patient and the respiratory plate.
New C-Qual M™ Breastboard Featuring the Monarch™ Overhead Arm Positioner
The innovative C-Qual M Breastboard is indexable for efficient, accurate setups and features an enhanced bottom stop that comfortably supports the patient. The new Monarch Overhead Arm Positioner is designed to match body contours for optimal arm support and includes dual function hand grips allowing for enhanced wrist comfort and increased positioning options. These new innovations are made from image-friendly materials that are compatible with multiple treatment imaging modalities.
Protura and TheraView Interface Now Available
The Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System now interfaces with TheraView using the TheraView Couch Setup Assistant (TCSA). Once TheraView calculates or imports the 6D match results, the TCSA directly controls the Protura motion to safely and efficiently correct patient set-up errors in all 6 degrees of freedom.
These new products and many more immobilization and patient positioning solutions to increase patient comfort, patient outcomes and satisfaction will be on display and available for demonstration at booth 5900!
