IZI Medical Products Introduces New Positioning Devices for Radiation Therapy


8/1/2011 8:49:50 AM

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - July 29, 2011) - IZI Medical Products, a leading innovator, manufacturer and distributor of quality medical devices, today announced the introduction of two new positioning devices for radiation therapy procedures. Leveraging its established manufacturing and sales success over the past decade, IZI Medical Products brings the new Thermaplastic Mask and MOLDCARE Pillow to market to stabilize the head, neck and shoulder during radiation therapy procedures.

The new Thermaplastic Mask from IZI Medical Products is available as an "S" or "U" frame in various sizes and thicknesses to accommodate the head and neck, and in some configurations, the shoulder area as well. Prior to treatment, technicians soak the flat sheets that are then molded to create a customized fit for each patient. Once fitted, the Thermaplastic locks onto the treatment table and can be reused for the patient throughout the course of treatment. Two variations of the Thermaplastic Mask are available including a standard reinforced white mask, as well as a mask reinforced with Klarity Green®, a material that ensures rigid and stable positioning for precise treatment once the mask has been stretched over the face.

IZI Medical Products' new MOLDCARE Pillow provides stable placement of the head during treatment and increases patient comfort. Available in six sizes, the MOLDCARE Pillow is routinely used concurrently with the Thermaplastic Mask to provide precise patient positioning.

"IZI Medical Products continues its mission to provide accuracy with the positioning devices that reduce movement during head and neck procedures," said Helen Shafer, chief executive officer of IZI Medical Products. "Our commitment to quality and customer service, as well as competitive pricing, is among the reasons why so many providers choose our products in the US as well as 50 countries abroad."

More information about the new Thermaplastic Mask and MOLDCARE Pillow from IZI Medical Products is available at www.izimed.com or by calling 800-231-1499. IZI Medical Products offers free shipping for all online orders.
