Aug. 2, 2011 — Civco announced the signing of a reseller agreement allowing Varian Medical Systems to offer Civco's Body Pro-Lok to its customers. Introduced in 2008 and installed at more than 150 community and academic facilities worldwide, Body Pro-Lok acts as a modular base for indexable patient positioning, secure immobilization and efficient patient transport.

The system was designed to maximize patient comfort during immobilization for treatment. Niko Papanikolaou, Ph.D, chief of the division of medical physics at UT San Antonio's Cancer Therapy & Research Center, has worked extensively with the product. "The Body Pro-Lok system is very effective for SBRT respiration immobilization," he said. "It is highly indexed, provides setup reproducibility and it is an easy and efficient device to use for robust immobilization."

The system can be used with the company’s Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System and Universal Couchtop, Body Pro-Lok as part of a complete motion management solution. Protura and Universal Couchtop have been validated with Varian's Clinac and Trilogy platforms.
