innovative and extra flat couch top: Six degrees of freedom with the RPS mini, make your radiotherapy treatment more precise

The RPS mini is an extra flat top module, which can be fixed on conventional patient couches. Due to the innovative add-on of the RPS mini, it’s possible to reach six degrees of freedom, also with existing tables. The modification is implemented quickly and simply.

Call us to find out how to upgrade already existing patient couches to a six degrees of freedom table with the innovative RPS mini. We will be pleased to advise you extensively.

Perfect support for innovative treatments

The six degrees of freedom of the RPS mini allows, in combination with body scanners or a tumor tracking systems, complete new treatment approaches for radiation therapy. For instance, the RPS mini, with his six degrees of freedom, can support the 4D-radiation therapy: The tumor will be located exactly and any possible changes in the position of the patient or the marked tumor will be compensated. This allows a high precise irradiation of tumor tissue and avoids side effects on surrounding healthy tissue.

Just a few years ago, there was no possibility to take into account movements of the patient or tumor. Therefore wide irradiations were required to cover the tumor completely.

With his six degrees of freedom, the RPS mini creates a new standard for modern radiation therapy applications. Also body scanners work together with the RPS mini in an optimal way: Any change in the position of the patient is measured by the body scanner.

The RPS mini, thanks to his six degrees of freedom capability, allows an automatic compensation of the patient position. This prevents to stop the treatment

The Key Features – Advantages of the 6 DoF RPS mini

With reduced acquisition costs and a height of only 17 cm (6.7”), the RPS mini turns conventional patient couches into high-tech treatment tables with six degrees of freedom.

The system allows optimal reproducible treatments. The RPS mini system, in combination with body scanner or tumor-tracking-system, detects and compensates automatically any change on the patient or tumor position.

  • small height with only 17 cm (6.7”)
  • cost-effective modernization of existing patient couches
  • quick and easy installation
  • all standard technical add ons can be attached on the RPS mini
  • illuminated buttons for an optimal user comfort
