Positioning cushions are critical in radiation therapy to ensure the precise and stable placement of patients during treatment. These cushions help maintain consistent patient positioning across multiple sessions, which is vital for accurately targeting radiation beams at tumors while sparing surrounding healthy tissues. By immobilizing the patient, positioning cushions reduce the risk of movement that could lead to misalignment, thereby enhancing the accuracy and effectiveness of the therapy.

In addition to improving treatment precision, positioning cushions also enhance patient comfort, which is crucial for maintaining stillness during sometimes lengthy treatment sessions. These cushions are designed to contour to the patient’s body, providing customized support that helps alleviate discomfort and anxiety. This not only improves the patient’s overall experience but also contributes to the efficacy of the treatment by ensuring that the patient remains in the correct position throughout each session.
