Accuray partners Still River Systems to develop PBRT solution

Accuray : 30 October, 2007  (New Product)
Accuray has entered into a partnership with Still River Systems, developer of high quality, cost-effective proton beam radiotherapy solutions, and will provide Still River with a robotic patient positioning system.
Accuray will supply a version of the RoboCouch Robotic Patient Positioning System, which intelligently positions patients with six degrees of freedom for treatment, enabling clinicians to automatically re-position the patient from the control room. The patient positioning system will be used with Still River Systems' Monarch 250 PBRT System, a practical, cost-efficient, single-room proton beam Radiotherapy (PBRT) system scaled for use at most cancer centres.

'We are pleased that Still River Systems recognises Accuray's prominent position in the field of medical robotics and has chosen us to develop their patient positioning system,' said Chris Raanes, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Accuray. 'Accuray's technologies are precise and will allow the Monarch 250 System to provide optimal patient positioning accuracy and comfort.'

'As it is well recognised that precise positioning is required to gain the advantages of proton therapy, we are excited to work with Accuray to bring new standards of excellence to positioning patients for these treatments,' said Marc Buntaine, CEO of Still River Systems. 'With our Monarch 250 System including a custom version of the RoboCouch, physicians will be able to quickly and precisely position patients in correct translation and rotational alignment for each proton treatment fraction.'
