With the acquisition of WOLF-Medizintechnik (WOmed) GmbH, Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG expanded its product portfolio through x-ray devices. WOmed devices have been successfully used in x-ray and orthovoltage therapy around the world.
X-ray therapy is a radiation therapy treatment method that is used not only for the treatment of cancerous diseases. It has traditionally occupied a solid position in the therapy of benign diseases, primarily inflammatory and degenerative diseases such as arthritis, polyarthritis, and tennis elbow.
The WOmed product portfolio includes the T-105 which is designed for superficial X-ray therapy in a range of 10 to 100 kV, and consists of a mobile cart with mounted stand and tube head. The T-300, T-200, and T-160 series of devices can be used in superficial, intermediate and deep radiation therapy, in the voltage range of 15 to 300 kV, depending on the system, and thus meet the latest clinical requirements. The ioRT-50 system extends the range of devices for conventional radiotherapy by a further system for superficial therapy which additionally provides intraoperative x-ray therapy. It has a maximum tube voltage of 70 kV.
