Bionix's Head Support Designed to Increase Reproducibility


June 18, 2009 - Bionix Radiation Therapy announces the arrival of the SecureVac VersaCushion is designed to increase reproducibility, maximizes patient comfort, and is considered a complex billing device.

Most patients do not fit perfectly on simple head rests creating ‘gaps’ between the device and the patient. This results in poor patient comfort and adjustments needed in the patient treatment plan.

The SecureVac VersaCushion is a brick-shaped vacuum pillow the size of a Silverman head support and made from a durable vinyl material designed to withstand the rigorous 8-week treatment cycle while keeping the shape of the patient’s head and neck. A vacuum tube protrudes from the side of the bag which can be positioned on any current head board for indexing and fits easily inside thermoplastic masks. If physical attributes of the patient change during treatment thus creating a need for a new custom fit, you can easily re-mold the VersaCushion without wasting product or material.
