The products are medical devices used for patient positioning and immobilisation in radiation therapy. The product can be used for both simulation and treatment, including MRI simulation.
The bite block is available in a version with and without tongue depressor. The bite block without tongue depressor has a flat shape and the bite block with tongue depressor has a round shape containing a small block that is pushing down the tongue, away from the treatment field.
Each Efficast® thermoplastic mask can be moulded over the bite block. Both bite blocks have an airway opening that protrudes a hole in the mask for easy patient breathing. The outer contours of the bite blocks are visible in the mask making it a reproducible solution for increased patient immobilisation during head & neck treatments.
