Orfit Industries is proud to announce that our innovative thermoplastic immobilization masks are used on the Elekta Leksel Gamma Knife Icon.
Elekta is a company with a long standing reputation in cancer treatment and it has selected Orfit Industries to develop an immobilization mask that allows non-invasive immobilization of the patient on their new Gamma Knife. The thermoplastic mask allows the radiation therapists to immobilize the patients in a more comfortable way compared to an invasive head frame, while maintaining a similar stability during the treatment. The use of a thermoplastic mask also allows the treatment in multiple sessions.
Orfit Industries and Elekta have collaborated closely in this project in order to find the right shape, configuration and attachment for the thermoplastic mask.
Finally a hybrid mask has been chosen for optimal stability during the treatment.
