Body Pro-Lok was designed to maximize patient comfort during immobilization for treatment.  Niko Papanikolaou, Ph.D, Chief of the Division Medical Physics at UT San Antonio's Cancer Therapy & Research Center, has worked extensively with the Body Pro-Lok immobilization product. "The Body Pro-Lok system is very effective for SBRT respiration immobilization," said Papanikolaou. "It is highly indexed, provides setup reproducibility and it is an easy and efficient device to use for robust immobilization."

When used with CIVCO's Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System and Universal Couchtop, Body Pro-Lok is part of a complete motion management solution. Protura and Universal Couchtop have been validated with Varian's Clinac® and Trilogy® platforms.  Body Pro-Lok is available worldwide through CIVCO's account representatives, and now also through Varian's sales channels.
