December 3, 2007 - Composiflex, a global supplier of highly-engineered composite products, has expanded its manufacturing and design capabilities to produce patient positioning systems that are reportedly well suited for use with MRI diagnostic technology.
The vast majority of composite patient positioning products in the market today are manufactured using carbon fiber, which is primarily applicable for use with CT scan and X-ray technologies, but not with MRI equipment.
For an existing customer, Composiflex modified the design of a carbon-fiber-based head and neck board. With product development and testing now complete, the MRI-compatible boards have attracted tremendous interest during recent trade show debuts. 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.
