Global Patient Positioning System Market

For proper dose delivery in cancer treatment with radiation, accurate patient setup is necessary, since the unsuitable arrangement can cause disease recurrence, permanent organ damage, or lack of disease control. Manual tuning is required, involving iterative, time-consuming steps with the current immobilization equipment that often helps for patient positioning. There are various kinds of patient positioning systems that are used for treatment of many kinds of diseases and for various therapies, also electromechanical robotic systems are there for improving patient setup in radiotherapy, specifically targeting head and neck cancer. This positioning system helps to six degrees of freedom for a variety of applications in radiation oncology. To design the system an investigative calculation of converse kinematics serves as essential criteria. The device feasibility and reliability to be used in radiotherapy can be judged by the computational mechanical modeling and experimental study of radiotherapy compatibility and X-ray-based imaging. The clinical feasibility of the system gets the support of an absolute positioning accuracy test in a clinical treatment room.

The patient positioning systems are also used while treatment of the tumors from the planned direction, many companies and manufacturers are offering medical positioning devices in healthcare sector. Systems offered by the companies are like In-Bed Patient Positioning System that helps to make turning easier and positioning more secure and easy. The features in these systems like two wedges bolsters support the side-laying for the patient, hook and loop strips on the bolsters hold the placing pad in place so there is no slippage of the body. These systems also provide pad features along with the two strong handles for easier turning, this specialty of these systems are that it has the launderable, there are three-layer positioning pad that wicks away moisture caused by incontinence, perspiration, or wound drainage. In the series of these systems there are also elevating bed wedges that comfortably elevate the head or feet. The system are more effective than pillows or rolled towels, they can resist slipping and provide secure positioning. Specialty table for large cases, such as spinal fusions, orthopedics, neurological cases, or craniotomies are also offered by the companies. They help in angled, cantilevered shelf for clear observation of instruments.

There are also glide lateral air transfer system with the features like it creates a cushion of air for lateral transfers, it allows for patient transfers with reduced force on shoulders and back, these are the ideal tool that support no-lift safe patient handling protocols. Many other positioning systems and devices are provided by the industrialists and the manufactures such as heel protector, foot pillow, lateral supports that grip patient front and back for simple, secure lateral positioning, nonslip surface overlay or disc that can be used for almost any procedure. For comfortability of the patients there are also bean bag and other positioners such as gel bean bag in which layers move independently from each other and extremely durable and repels staining, Mattresses which help prevent formation of pressure ulcers.

Now that its accuracy has been improving in Radiotherapy (RT), since radiotherapy it is a way to treat cancer that is growing as a field. The reason for this improved precision is because of the patient positioning equipment and how the patient is immobilized during the treatment itself. By making it certain the patient is continuously in the same position over multiple radiation treatments and that the patient stays comfortable enough not to shift during treatment, RT has been growing as a successful, accurate and fiscally sound way to treat cancer. The positioning equipment makes more sense to give a patient more radiation in fewer sessions such as in addition to save the time and money, the patients are not disturbed by having to make multiple trips to a facility and getting better throughput at a facility. The newly performed technique about which positioning equipment experts seem divided is called gating i.e. the radiation beam is turned on and off during treatment as the target moves in and out of focus. So with the help of this it will be much easier for the doctors to treatment of the patients.

Increasing Number of Surgeries Due to the Growing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases:

Due to the increase in aging population, utilization rates of diagnostic imaging have risen rapidly relative to other health services these days for different treatments there is a requirement of the patient positioning system which is helping the doctors and nurses to comfortably and easily treat the patients. As life expectation continues to increase globally, radiologists are facing with unique challenges when imaging geriatric patients also that need surgeries, the people are also suffering from chronic diseases that needs the patient treatment with the different positions. The studies have revealed that it may be 10 times more problematic to get useful clinical imaging information in high aged patients than in younger ones and also because the elderly aged people have a tendency to present with non-specific symptoms. So these are the reasons that why the increasing number of surgeries due to the growing prevalence of chronic diseases are driving the global patient positioning system market.
