The notion of breast positioning has been turned upside down with the Horizon Prone Breastboard. Unlike other bulky prone positioners, the Horizon is lightweight, weighing less than 20 pounds. Patient comfort is achieved through weight-dispersing memory foam, and the ergonomic design allows for optimal patient access.
The system comes with three carbon fiber wedges. The wedges vary in size from 15 to 25 cm, to create a customized fit for each patient.
