Klarity Medical June Newsletter:

Dear friends and colleagues,

For this newsletter, I wanted to take a moment to tell you more about our Klarity AccuCushions for Radiation Therapy. For the uninitiated, these are heat-moldable, thermoplastic head cushions for head, neck, and shoulder stabilization.  

When we created the first AccuCushion, our goal was to design a moldable cushion similar to Moldcare cushions, but better. Requirements were easy to define, but not easy to meet. The new cushion had to be simple to mold, comfortable, highly secure, odor free, and heated at the same temperature as a thermoplastic mask. 

Our moment of Zen arrived when we found just the right resin/pellet formula that holds shape with exactly the right force. "Voilà," we said. A lot of unprintable expletives preceded the discovery of that formula.

How well have we succeeded?  The best measure is to talk to clinicians using our AccuCushions. Their numbers are growing every day at clinics throughout the world.

One recent study published in the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics shows how doctors at MD Anderson use AccuCushions to reduce voluntary and involuntary patient movement, with less pitch and rotation, and significantly increased accuracy. You can read the full report here.

Our Klarity website (www.klaritymedical.com) contains more information about AccuCushions, including demonstration videos. We’re also working on new designs and applications for this terrific product. I hope to tell you more about that in future newsletters.

Thank you for sharing your valuable time.
