TCS - Tumor Cell Solution
One therapy. Three effects.
Deep-tissue hyperthermia increases the tumor temperature in a controlled way. This process gently enhances the impact of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, while supporting the immune system at the same time.
Hyperthermia to complement radiation therapy
The proven effect of hyperthermia in combination with radiation therapy relies on various mechanisms.
It has been documented in numerous comparative studies that hyperthermia reinforces radiation therapy. In-vivo studies have shown that the effectiveness of radiation therapy can be increased by a factor of 1.2 to 5 with hyperthermia.
Hyperthermia to complement chemotherapy
The interactions of hyperthermia and cytostatic drugs can be independent, additive and synergistic.
Hyperthermia to strengthen the body’s own immune system
Hypothermia increases both the effectiveness of the two above-mentioned methods, while supporting the body’s own immune system as an additional benefit. After all, responding to certain situations with a fever is a natural reaction of the body, which in effect creates hyperthermia conditions on its own.
The TCS – Tumor Cell
Solution System is designed to treat various body regions with ergonomic precision. This is made possible by the flexibility of the hydraulic arm and the versatile positioning options for the electrodes.
We not only care about the optimal treatment success of our hyperthermia system, but also its delivery method. It should be gentle and free of stress and pain.
In everyday clinical practice, patient and treatment information and data must be accessible quickly and easily. That not only saves time, but also guarantees the proper therapy settings.
Patient data is managed safely and easily. All treatment data is accessible throughout the therapy, including for long-term treatment. Individually programmable treatment protocols guarantee an up-to-date, and above all, consistent therapy course.
