    Advanced Type-S Overlay

    # PPC-123      Advanced Type-S Overlay
    The advanced Type-S™ overlay was designed for conformal, IMRT,IGRT, SRT & SRS treatments and is intended to provide minimal attenuation through 360゚of treatment angles. The convenience of Type-S mask continuous frame allows easier handling during setup. This advanced Type-S overlay is made of carbon fiber with foam core & has many new unique designs, such as exchangeable head modules for a carbon fiber grid or the pillow indent in order to produce custom conformal head cushions by two-part foaming agents, Moldcare™ and vacuum pillows.

     Advanced Type-S Overlay

    Besides, # PPC-123 has additional 4 docking holes for accepting narrower S-Frame masks # PSDC-44 for children & thin patients. Its lightweight and built-in handles also make transportation easy. In addition to using the lock bars to mount on various treatment and imaging couches, this overlay comes with 4 back pegs for quick-setting on Varian couch.

    Custom Pillow Insert & Grid Pattern Insert

    # SPC-VR @7      Shim Plate with V-shaped Recess (carbon fiber, 7mm)
    # SPC-GR @7      Shim Plate with Grid Recess (carbon fiber, 7mm)
    Like all our baseplates with head modules, this overlay has a rectangular recess designed to accommodate universal headrests such as TIMO™ & SILVERMAN™. In addition, after assembling with the optional custom Panels (# SPC-VR @7 and # SPC-GR @7), it will be ideal to produce posterior pillows by using water curing pillows like MoldCare™, two-part foaming agents or vacuum bags to maximize immobilization accuracy and patient comfort for cranial treatments.

    Bar & Square Cushion Positioner

    # PPC-123-BCP      Bar Cushion Positioner
    # PPC-123-SCP      Square Cushion Positioner
    Commercialized Type-S overlays with grid head module can the optional bar cushion positioner or square cushion positioner to fix the custom posterior cushions made by vacuum bags, water-curing MoldCare™ or two-part foam agents

    # MMR-101      Mold Maker (Small for head)
    # MMR-102      Mold Maker (Large for head/neck/shoulder)
    # MMR-103      Mold Maker (Set for shoulders)
    These mold makers are designed for molding posterior cushions to avoid collision with the thermoplastic frame when pulling the patient casts down to the overlay. They can efficiently hold and mold the head/shoulders cushions made of VacBag™, Moldcare™ and two-part foaming agent, within the confines of masks / frame profile during molding process of pillows. After the cushions are formed, these retainers are removed prior to pulling the masks over the patient. All are made of high impact strength plastics and built-in handles at head modules make daily operations easily.

    Variable Axis Baseplate

    # PPC-123-HPPC-KIT      High Precision Pillows for patient with short neck
    These pillows are designed to overcome the ill-fitting problem while using commercialized TIMO headrests for the treatment of patient with short necks. A set of six non-coated pillows are indexed A ~ F for identification but the color-coded ones are also available upon request. The smooth surface of plain pillow is easy to clean with water or alcohol.

    Variable Axis Baseplate

    # PPC-123-VAB      Variable Axis Baseplate
    This variable axis baseplate can integrate with Type-S boards to provide a tilting movement with patient fixation in the prone, supine and lateral positions. The variable axis design allows for natural head and neck movement during patient set-up possible. It can accommodate universal TIMO / Silverman pillows and # TIMO-PP prone pillow with the use of shims & small-Frame masks. Like all our head boards, this baseplate also has a rectangular recess to accommodate the optional shim panel, say, # SPC-VR @7 in order to produce custom pillows by using two-part foaming agents, water curing pillows and vacuum pillows to maximize patient comfort and immobilization accuracy during cranial treatments.

    Hollow Tubes

    # PPC-123-HT      Hollow Tubes
    # PPC-123-HTU     Hollow Tubes with board
    Simply using 3 ea. of hollow carbon fiber tubes, 1 ea. of U-shaped carbon fiber board and 2 ea. of V-Frame masks, the overlay can proceed IMRT, IGRT, SRT and SRS treatments by clam shell mechanism with superior patient positioning and minimal materials to simplify planning work and reduce obstructions. Lightweight and easy to use!

    Shoulder Suppression

    # PPC-123-SSF      Shoulder Suppression Fixer ( two ea. / kit )
    # PPC-123-SSA      Shoulder Suppression Attachment ( two rails scaled from "A" to "J" )
    # PPC-123-SSF Shoulder Suppression Fixer is designed to capture patients' shoulders out of treatment field while using small S-Frame masks and, due to its simply mechanism, technicians can mount and dismissed two fixers in a minute on the overlay. The fixers can easily move forwards and backwards on the rails scaled from "A" ~ "F". The padded positioners can be adjusted vertically ( level from # 1 to # 7 ) and laterally (Left, Central and Right position) for different treatment needs.

     Hand Grip Array

    # PPR-123-HGA      Hand Grip Array
    This optional plastic hand grip array aids in the reproducing the positioning of patient's shoulders and can ensure accurate alignment from treatment to treatment. Each array has 7 holes with spacing about 2 cm for inserting the plastic hand grips and can mount on the overlay permanently by two screws and be dismissed in a minute.
