CDR Systems introduces the PowerWEDGE radiation therapy positioning device with patient comfort in mind

August 20, 2019
Calgary, AB CDR Systems launches the PowerWEDGETM specifically designed to improve the experience for patients that struggle with laying flat on their back, the most common treatment position for the treatment of cancer using external beam radiation therapy. The PowerWEDGETM provides an angulation option for patient immobilization that previously could only be offered in a lay flat position. This new all-in-one medical device is designed to enhance patient comfort and setup accuracy through improved comfort and is offered with 8 additional module attachments ensuring patient setup can be tailored for a wide range of treatment needs, including: cranial stereotactic (SRS), Body Stereotactic (SBRT), head and neck, breast, lung, liver, spine or pelvic treatments.

“It is clear a significant subset of the patient population struggle to lay in a flat position and a solution that upholds inter and intra patient positioning accuracy without compromising comfort was needed. We have created the PowerWEDGE to answer just that. Carl Denis, CEO at CDR Systems.
