• Cancer Treatment:

    A Large Global Industry

    We’re ready to launch a large and leading medical device manufacturing business, in partnership with a regional government, and local medical and academic communities.

  • 1 in 2 people will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime.

    1 in 5 people will succumb to some form of the disease.

    Cancer treatment is a large and growing industry.  

    The rapid growth of specialized cancer treatment centers, in more remote locations, is key to improving treatment access and results.

     

    Patient positioning is a critical component of the radiation treatment process.

     

    New high dosage, high precision radiotherapy cancer treatments require next generation positioning products. We have one of the industry’s proven designers and thought leaders ready to build the new paradigm.

  • Current patient positioning offerings have not kept pace with the rapid progress in cancer treatment technologies and processes.

     

    Recent advancements in cancer treatment – esp. in proton and image-guided therapies - are restrained by current device limitations.

     

    A next generation design, far more integrated into the emerging treatment processes and technologies, will make the previous generations of patient positioning devices obsolete.
