Embrace Thermoplastic Bionix Radiation Therapy

January 14, 2013 — Embrace Thermoplastic is a premium low-melt material used to create customizable immobilization for patients receiving radiation therapy treatments of the head and neck. Embrace Thermoplastic products include Standard UFrames, Versaboard frames, S-Type frames, and Thermoplastic sheets. All Embrace Thermoplastic products are made in the United States. 

Embrace Thermoplastic features minimal tackiness and shrinkage, and encompasses an even hole distribution pattern after molding which helps increase overall rigidity. Embrace provides a smooth comfort edge, which ensures maximum patient comfort along the neckline. 

Embrace standard U-Frames fit most head boards industry wide, and feature more thermoplastic with a durable, narrow frame.  Embrace Versaboard Frames fit Bionix Versaboard and Max 3 Supine Breast Systems. The S-type frames, available in February, fit the S-Type System. The Thermoplastic sheets are specifically designed for intensity modulated radiation therapy treatments (IMRT). 

The product is available now for immediate purchase excluding the S-Type Frames, which will be available in February.
