Small Belly Board.

A Belly Board is used to allow the intestinal tract to drop out of the treatment field.  Treatment through the foam material has a low absorption of the beam.  This unit is made of lightweight, non-breakable high density foam and is coated with a durable blue finish for easy cleaning.  The light weight allows for easy handling of the Belly Board.  The soft flexible surface provides patient comfort and helps retain excellent body positioning.  The bottom surface is anti-skid on treatment and simulator couches.  The Belly Board includes one opening reducer that when placed in the opening makes the size of the opening smaller.

A new option is the Belly Board Thickness Increaser.  This Belly Board Thickness Increaser can be placed under the Small Belly Board; to increase the thickness of the combined Belly Boards to 8" (20.3 cm) The Belly Board Thickness Increaser has the same size opening as the Small and Large Belly Boards and has the same width and length as the Large Belly Board.

When the EXACT Enhance Bar is attached to the Belly Board with the Glue Dots, the belly board can then be indexed using a Lock-Bar or a similar bar.  This will allow positioning the belly board in the same position daily.

Cleaning Instructions:  Soap and Water, 50/50 Bleach / Water or an ammonia solution can be used.
