kVue™ Couch Top with kVue™ DoseMax™:
kVue Couch Tops provide optimal fields of treatment for high-energy radiation therapy and easily adapt to patient and cancer specific treatment needs. They are designed to minimize radiation dose to a patient’s skin and maximize dose directly to the tumor through the use of easily interchangeable, low attenuating kVue inserts. A system of graduated measurements on the couch top and insert surfaces ensure reproducibility of patient positioning from day to day.

Business History:

In 2001, Qfix was formed when WFR Aquaplast Corporation and Anholt Technologies, Inc. merged.   Over 40 years ago, WFR Aquaplast Corporation invented the first low temperature thermoplastic, Aquaplast RT™, which is now the most recognized brand of thermoplastics in the world.  Building on this innovation, we developed Fibreplast™, a Kevlar® reinforced version of Aquaplast RT™, enabling us to provide the most rigid thermoplastic available. Both Aquaplast RT and Fibreplast are used around the world to create rigid masks and shells.

In addition to thermoplastics, Qfix has developed a wide variety of patient positioning devices to provide tremendous flexibility in treatment options. The revolutionary kVue™ IGRT couch top supports an array of interchangeable inserts for multiple simulation and treatment solutions. No other product offers a more complete and advanced system for both kV imaging and MV treatment. For example the kVue with DoseMax™ insert, at 2mm water equivalent thickness, offers a unique combination of rigidity and ultra-low attenuation.
