    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 will include one ea. of tuner arch with the built-in # PPC-302-TR-15 Standard Threaded Rod with respiratory suppression plate and two ea. of 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 plate and two ea. of 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

    # VBF-002-KIT     VacBag Fixer Kit
    This economy fixer kit can help to increase treatment accuracy and patient throughput while using vacuum cushions for patient comfort. One fixer kit comes two fixers with 2.0cm tall pegs and one fixer with 3cm tall peg.




    Respiratory Compression Belt

    # PPC-302-CB-01     Small Respiratory Compression Belt
    # PPC-302-CB-02     Large Respiratory Compression Belt
    These optional belts are designed to put pressure just below the lungs to limit lung movement with respirations. The bladder with a cotton cover is attached to a Velcro belt which is wrapped snugly around the patient just below the sternal notch. The small air bladder is 4” x 12” and large one is 6” x12”. Once the belt and bladder are in position on the patient, the bladder is manually inflated with a hand pump. The pressure gauge is used to record the amount of pressure used to achieve the desired limits of lung movement. This allows for reproducibility of the same amount of pressure for each treatment fraction.




    Respiratory Compression Belt

    # PPC-302-CB-03    Advanced Respiratory Compression Belt
    This optional kit comes with a handheld aneroid gauge, two sliding clamps, a bladder with a Nylon belt notched from 2cm to 32cm on the both sides. The gauge features a smooth trigger-style air release valve, ergonomic design and certified accuracy to +/- 3 mmHg to meet clinical needs.




    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...
