November 26, 2007 - Composiflex, a global supplier of medical composite products, has expanded its manufacturing and design capabilities to produce patient positioning systems that are well suited for use with MRI diagnostic technology. The large majority of composite patient positioning products in the market today are manufactured using carbon fiber, which is applicable for use with CT scan and X-ray technologies, but not with MRI equipment.
Composiflex used its composite technology to modify the design of a carbon-fiber-based head and neck board. Potential composite medical device solutions for magnetic resonance and multi-mode compatibility include tabletops/couches/pallets, extensions, oncology breast boards, head-and-neck immobility products, and other accessories.
