New C-Qual M™ Breastboard Featuring the Monarch™ Overhead Arm Positioner
This enhanced breastboard is indexable for efficient, accurate setups and features a newly designed bottom stop and optional Pearltec lumbar cushion to comfortably support patient position. 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 optimized for multi-modality use.
New Wide Respiratory Plate and Pearltec Cushion for CIVCO's Body Pro-Lok ONE™ Bridge for SBRT
The Body Pro-Lok ONE provides one simple solution for complex SBRT patient setups featuring the ONE Bridge with innovative lateral and tilting offset and variable height adjustment capability. The newly designed Wide Respiratory Plate provides abdominal compression and diffuses pressure across the abdominal region, resulting in a more tolerable compression for the patient. The Pearltec cushion provides an added dimension of customized comfort during compression. The cushion forms to the contours of the patient during inflation, providing an additional level of comfort and contoured pressure between the patient and the respiratory plate.
