Standard PolyFoam F/R™
Our regular Polyfoam F/R™ positioners are supportive yet comfortable. They are manufactured from special high density resilient 2 lb. estar foam which is functionally radiolucent and artifact free. They are plain foam, Not Upholstered or Coated. The high-friction surface eliminates slippage. These positioners are preferred for radiographic, fluoroscopic and other imaging uses.
Armor-Guard™ Coated Positioners are made from specially coated high density Dura-foam™. Their Armor-guard™ coated surface can be readily wiped clean. These positioners are functionally radiolucent making them an excellent choice for radiographic use. In some instances, their vertical edges, when X-rayed at 90 degrees making the edge parallel to the primary beam, can create a slight image shadow. Users should place 90 degree edges outside the area of interest. These positioners are preferred for radiographic, fluoroscopic and other imaging uses.
