trUpoint Arch

The Challenge

Medical equipment design requires sensitivity to many stakeholders; from doctors and patients to purchasing departments and beyond. CIVCO, a leader in motion management for imaging and radiation oncology procedures, engaged Brooks Stevens for the design of trUpoint ARCH -- a new stabilization device for stereotactic radiosurgery.

The Solution

Debuted at the ESTRO Forum in Geneva, Switzerland, the trUpoint Arch was featured as an innovation leader for radiosurgery accessories.  The device stabilizes the patient for their comfort and safety while providing a consistent and quick setup for the technicians. Our industrial design and color strategy (for this and other CIVCO products within this environment) improved overall aesthetics through softer forms influenced by anatomy rather than rigid architecture and mechanics.
