    Respiratory Control System

    # PPC-302     Res- Con™ System (Passive)
    As greater fractions of irradiation are being administered, any unanticipated tumor movement can ruin well-designed treatment plans. Thus, respiratory motion must be at least accounted for if not controlled from a variety of methods. The most common ways to monitor respiratory motion are through gating technique, suppression of the diaphragm or chest wall and utilizing real time motion tracking with fiducial markers. After meticulous research and site testing, we developed a good device that encompasses the true nature of SBRT with comfortable positioning, respiratory motion considerations, simplest components to manage. This system can also use popular & handy low-temperature thermoplastics with two L-Handles by push & pull docking pins to produce anterior casts and vacuum VacBag™ for posterior cushions to increase immobilization and patient comfort. Standard kit includes RES-Con™ carbon fiber baseplate, one standard medium carbon fiber bridge, one standard threaded rod with respiratory suppression plate. Optional and spare parts can be ordered separately.

    Bridge

    # PPC-302-SB     Short Bridge         (adjustable height: 35cm to 47cm)

    # PPC-302-MB    Medium Bridge     (adjustable height: 37cm to 51cm)
    # PPC-302-TB     Tall Bridge             (adjustable height: 39cm to 53cm)

    # PPC-302-TR-10     Threaded Rod Kit     (scaled 1~10, short)
    # PPC-302-TR-15     Threaded Rod Kit     (scaled 1~15, standard)

    Each bridge comes with 1 ea. of tuner arch with built-in # PPC-302-TR-15 Standard Threaded Rod with respiratory suppression padded plate and 2 ea. of carbon fiber extended tubes. To avoid potential collision of CT gantry, you can also ask to get tall bridge # PPC-302-TB with the built-in # PPC-302-TR-10 Short Threaded Rod with suppreesion padded plate and extended tubes for giant patients.




    Helping Hands

    # PPC-302-HH     Helping Hands
    The helping hands are designed and ideal to help therapists to use vacuum cushions or two-part foaming agents which tend to hang off or expand into the space between the rails and pillars during the molding process of creating the posterior molds. (2 ea. per kit)




    VacBag Fixer Kit

    # PPC-302-VF-02     VacBag Fixer
    # PPC-302-VF-03     VacBag Fixer
    These economy fixers with 2cm / 3cm tall pegs can help to increase treatment accuracy, throughput and patient comfort while using with vacuum cushions.




    Respiratory Compression Belt

    # PPC-302-CB    Advanced Respiratory Compression Belt
    This optional belt comes with a handheld aneroid gauge, two sliding clamps, a bladder with a Nylon belt notched from 2cm to 32cm on the both sides of Velcro belts which can be adjusted by every 2cm width. It is specially designed to put pressure just below the lungs to limit lung movement with respirations. The gauge features a smooth trigger-style air release valve, ergonomic design and certified accuracy to +/- 3 mmHg to meet clinical needs. Once the belt and bladder are in position on the patient, the bladder is manually inflated with the hand pump. The pressure gauge is used to record the amount of pressure to achieve the desired limits of lung movement and can be easily disassembled by quick connectors. This help a lot for reproducibility of the same amount of pressure for each treatment fraction.




    Carbon Fiber

    # PPC-303     Res-Con™ System (Carbon Fiber)
    # PPR-303     Res-Con™ System (MR compatible)
    Most conventional products for respiratory control are using patient-restraint devices to keep patients in a fully confined state. Therefore, patients have to endure a long period of restraint and positioning error might be induced because of the clearance between the patient and device. Now, this upgraded system for active respiratory control not only can maximize patients comfort but only minimize positioning errors for treatments...

    Economy RES-Con™ Board

    # PPC-302-E    Economy RES-Con™ Board
    This handy board comes with an advanced respiratory compression belt and is ideal to limit lung movement with respirations by using the belt, handheld aneroid gauge, two sliding clamps with windows for indexing to put pressure just below the lungs. Once the belt and bladder are in position on the patient, the bladder can be manually inflated with the hand pump and easily deflated by pushing down the air-release switch of aneroid gauge and pushing the bladder. The pressure gauge is used to record the amount of pressure to achieve the desired limits of lung movement and can be easily disassembled by quick connectors.
