Bravelle™ Single Breast Immobilization

The Bravelle, a single breast immobilization and repositioning tool, allows you to reproduce the set-up position of the involved breast in a precise and efficient manner. The Bravelle may be used on small to very large breasts. The Bravelle can be used as a stand-alone single breast immobilizer. However, when used with the BF4 or BF4E forms, it offers supreme reproducibility by being indexed to the Alpha Cradle brand form. It drastically reduces set-up times that can be prolonged from the complications of repositioning breast tissue.
BF4R With Bravelle
Large breasts are pulled up away from the chest wall, reducing the volume of lung treated.

BRVEach Bravelle kit comes with a chest strap, a shoulder strap and a PVC tube that encircles the breast. Each case of Bravelle comes with a tube cutter for making exact perpendicular cuts, minimizing the chances of pinching the breast with the tube.
BRVThe Bravelle holds the breast up away from the lung, potentially reducing the amount of lung treated. The Bravelle also keeps the largest breasts from falling to the side. As shown, notice the breast remains in position.Bravelle shown with breast form made on the ACMMII. Also shown with port cut in the form, so you don’t have to treat through any foam.

Notice that the Bravelle keeps this size-DD breast from falling off the chest wall. Without the Bravelle, this larger breast would be almost impossible to treat.

Mav Form

The Mav Form is the most creative form offered by SMP. The MAV allows 4 different types of forms to be made: both arms up, both arms down, left up, right down, and right up, left down. Each side allows 120° of positioning of the arm. The width of the Mav Form has been modified to fit inside a CT window to allow CT imaging for simulation with the patient in the form. For superior breast repositioning, use the Bravelle™ with this form. Patients can be treated lying flat, or supported on an included 15° wedge insert. The slim design allows use with CT, PET, IMRT, IGRT and 3DCRT.
