The use of thermoplastics in radiotherapy is quite conventional where bespoke masks for head and neck upper body, torso and limbs ensure the patient returns to the same position on the therapy machine time and time again.
The differences with Klarity thermoplastic are that it does not stick, even to itself, offers minimal shrinkage with longer working time and can be reworked. Available in all styles of fitting enabling its use with current systems - Klarity is also very affordable !
And ask about easy to use, Klarity re-usable AccuCushions™ which allow you to create a custom head support for each patient. Designed for use with Silverman head supports or alone as a support pillow, with or without a thermoplastic mask, Klarity AccuCushions can be reheated and reformed as often as needed.
In most external beam therapy the patient will be attached to an immobilisation device fixed to the treatment machine couch.
And Klarity is not all about thermoplastics - check out their boards, now in use in many UK centres, Klarity’s portfolio of carbon-fibre boards has been engineered to fit all popular couches and to accommodate all conventional treatment areas of the body.
The boards are complemented by a wide selection of accessories such as vacuum support cushions for the head, head and neck, head and shoulders and body – all helping to make the patient feel more comfortable and most importantly, accurately positioned.
Klarity’s philosophy is to continue to develop and manufacture a full range of positioning aids and accessories to satisfy the demands of modern evolving treatment techniques. Please go to Klarity's new video store to view the latest information - click HERE
