Treatment Brassiere Caddy

tbc-2_600x600


The Treatment Brassiere dependably delivers a more uniform dose every time. It reshapes the ipsilateral breast more favorably for radiation treatments and repositions the contralateral breast away from the beams. A full brassiere library of 40 cups is available in a portable caddy for convenient, organized fitting of nearly all patients.

Data on increased skin dose due to the ipsilateral cup were submitted to the FDA. These data provided a comparison of skin dose increased by the Treatment Brassiere with the increase found for various thermoplastic positioning devices on the market. The skin dose due to the cup material (0.50 mm thick for small cups to about 0.63 mm thick for very large cups) was found to be substantially less than for other positioning devices. The FDA has issued a 510 (k) Marketing Clearance for the Treatment Brassiere.
