Belly & Pelvis

 Belly & Pelvis

The AIO Solution contains a cushion set specifically designed for treatment of the belly and pelvis area. Next to this solution, Orfit Industries also offers the Pelvicast High Precision System, which uses the same masks, but different hardware that is only used for belly and pelvis treatment.

AIO Bellyboard & Pelvic Solution

The purpose of the bellyboard is to keep the intestines of the patient out of the radiation fields for treating malignancies in the pelvic area. The opening in the cushion in meant to accommodate the belly of the patient and thereby effectively separate the small bowels from the area to be treated. The cushion is easily positioned on the AIO base plates in an indexed way.

 

  •  The opening in the bellyboard can be fitted with three sizes of belly inserts for different sized patients. These inserts are made of a soft foam to increase comfort in the rib cage area.
  • Lateral inserts in the cushion allow the positioning of large patients.

  • The head part of the cushion is designed to drop the shoulders of the patient and reduce stress. The hands of the patient are placed under the base plate on special hand grips.
  • The head can be positioned by means of two types of head supports.

 

 

 

 

 

- A soft head support in the form of a ring that allows for a comfortable positioning of the head in prone position or sideways.

- A support that fixes the head rigidly in prone position. This support can be adjusted to fit the anatomy of the patient's face and allows the use of efficast masks for increased precision.

  • Pelvicast thermoplastic masks are used to reduce the cranial-caudal and rotational movements of the patients. A specially designed Leg Separator can be inserted after the patient has mounted the cushion, to fix a 6-points Pelvicast mask. This type of mask will further increase the reproducibility and precision of the treatment.

 

 

Pelvicast High Precision System

The Pelvicast High Precision System for pelvic and abdomen immobilization consists of a unique combination of three carefully designed and engineered components. When integrated, they result in the most accurate, reproducible and comfortable patient immobilization and positioning system.

  • Raycast carbon fibre low density hardware
  • Pelvicast frameless thermoplastic masks
  • Easy to insert and remove L-shaped profiles as interface between mask and base plate

Together with this system, an extra set of leg positioning cushions and a head support can be used for extra patient comfort. The Leg Separator is also compatible with this system.
