August 15, 2019
HALIFAX, June 7, 2019 – Adaptiiv Medical Technologies Inc. (Adaptiiv) is pleased to announce that Cablon Medical, a leading developer and supplier of radiotherapy hardware and software, will become their latest Alliance Partner offering personalized 3D printed medical accessories in Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg. Cablon Medical and Adaptiiv will provide clinically viable solutions that focus on improving treatment and patient care.
As an Alliance Partner, Cablon Medical will be distributing Adaptiiv’s software solution to enable 3D printing of patient-specific bolus, for photon and electron radiotherapy treatment, as well as high dose rate (HDR) surface brachytherapy applicators. The Adaptiiv software solution integrates directly with existing treatment planning software, enabling practitioners to design and 3D print a patient-specific bolus or applicator. This innovative technique requires less fabrication time, replaces the need for complex bolus and expensive applicators, and provides an improved treatment and patient experience.
“Adaptiiv’s solution provides our clients with a method to improve the quality and efficiency of care as well as the patient experience,” said Peter Schoor, Vice President, Europe at Cablon Medical. Adaptiiv is the first company to offer a platform that seamlessly integrates into existing treatment workflows and their team has demonstrated the ability to rapidly validate new approaches to treatment that are being used in a clinical setting,” says Schoor.
In 2018, Adaptiiv became the first company in the world to receive US FDA 510(k) clearance and a CE Mark for a 3D printing software solution intended for use in radiation oncology. 3D printed accessories conform to the patient anatomy to improve radiation dose delivery, patients are more comfortable throughout the treatment period, and because the software fully integrates with treatment planning systems, setup and production times are drastically reduced.
“Cablon Medical and Adaptiiv are aligned in our vision of the importance of providing the highest standard of patient care. Our solution represents a step further to enabling patient-specific care by increasing the clinical acceptance and implementation of 3D printing at the point-of-care. To that end, we are excited to partner with Cablon Medical as our partnership provides reach into countries that will play a significant role in our efforts to provide patient-specific solutions to the global radiotherapy market,” says Peter Hickey, CEO of Adaptiiv.
