    Positioning Cradles

    Foaming Agent

    FacileAid™ can produce excellent posterior positioning cradles as good as the cushions produced by the most well-known brand, Alpha CradleTM which was released since 1981 to RT market.
    Simply mixing two contents, therapists can get custom rigid foam molds in about 15 minutes easily. Unlike posterior cradles made of vacuum bags which frequently have unexpected flat problem, molds made from Facile Aid™ are rigid, light and permanent to keep the same contours / dimensions during the whole treatment course. The finished mold can be customized by a utility knife to cut desired "ports" and drawn directly on the molds for markings to aid in re-positioning for quality radiation treatments.

    *** Operation-Friendly
    Both bottle kits and ready-pack kits can help mold production in an easy and easy way. Its moderate curing time not only can avoid failure of molding work but also can reduce the motionless discomforts of patients during molding.

    *** Health & Environment-Friendly
    Due to no volatile organics in the formula, our products have no offensive odor and no inhalation hazard to technicians and patients during the whole production process. In addition, the fire retardant inside can effectively reduce smother emitted from burning foam in case an accidental fire happens or during garbage disposal.

    *** Clinical-Proven
    FacileAid™ kits release the least heat during molding process to make patients get maximum comfort. Besides, due to the proprietary formula, the finished cradles have less broken problems and the least shrinkage, consequently, can get maximum repositioning accuracy for treatments.

    Custom foaming speed or weight for personal preference are available.

    # FAMM-AV     Mold Maker (Advanced Version)
    The Advanced Mold Maker was designed by Koo Foundation Sun Yat-Sen Cancer Center in Taipei and has been proven for clinical use for more than two decades. The system consists of one carbon fiber baseplate and two plastic modules for the posterior mold production of upper body or lower extremities. The plastic semi-circular restrainer on the baseplate can help the technicians control the posterior molds in a desirable size for imaging and treatment.
    Simply using the baseplate along with upper body or lower body module as the photos shown below, therapists can create custom posterior molds with perfect contours by two-part foaming agents or vacuum bags to improve patient comfort and the accuracy of repositioning for treatment.
