The Proton Immobilization Device
HP PRO® the ideal solution for treating brain, head & neck and spinal tumours with proton therapy.
- Low density
- For close range treatment
The carbon fibre base plates are narrow in the head and neck area, allowing for close range positions of the treatment device. The base plates are lightweight with good dosimetric properties.
A personalised head support can be created with a Moldcare cushion. The cushion is attached to a head support indexing plate in order to create a reproducible set-up on a daily basis.
To ensure that the head of the patient is correctly positioned, and prior to moulding the mask, a cranial back-stop is attached to the cup-like head rest part of the base plate.
A set of hand holds is available to comfortably position the hands, arms and shoulders of the patient.
The masks are unique thanks to their patented locking mechanism. Comfort and stability are guaranteed by the use of Orfit’s Nanor thermoplastic material.
A complete paediatric product line, with a product range for patients between 0 and 7 years old with a base plate and masks and a product range for patients between 8 and 16 years old.
The HP PRO Solution by Orfit is one of the best for head and neck/brain patients in the proton world. It is very user friendly and compatible with most of our setups. My favorite feature is the ability to remold a mask if it doesn’t mold to the patient correctly the first time. I have remolded mask various times to get perfect patient alignment. The head rest indexing plates are also a nice touch to the system to ensure the Moldcare doesn’t slip when the patient is being positioned. The sleek, light weight design of the base plate itself allows a minimal air gap which is essential to reduce penumbra for base of skull treatments. I have personally recommended the HP PRO system to proton centers from Miami to the site in the Netherlands.
