3D Systems has entered into a partnership with Klarity, a company involved in solutions for radiation therapy, to expand the distribution of its FDA-cleared VSP Bolus solution. Klarity will offer VSP Bolus within its new line of patient-specific 3D printed products called Klarity Prints. Klarity Prints, powered by 3D Systems, is a service-based line of 3D-printed radiotherapy accessories such as VSP Bolus, which does not require specialized software or hardware.
3D Systems developed VSP Bolus to deliver 3D-printed, biocompatible, patient-specific boluses that can improve therapy modulation, decrease technician time, and enhance patient comfort, the company reports. Through the distribution agreement with Klarity, this 3D-printed solution is now available to radiotherapy clinics across the United States and Canada.
Once interested clinics contact their Klarity Account Manager, orders can be initiated quickly, and the patient-specific bolus is delivered within a few days. The Klarity Prints VSP Bolus product is 3D printed to the exact treatment plan bolus dimensions from a soft, biocompatible, material that contours to the patient’s anatomy for an improved treatment experience for providers and patients.
“This collaboration aligns perfectly with Klarity’s ongoing commitment to improving the quality of care provided by our customers,” says Peter Larson, CEO, Klarity. “As a North American distributor of 3D Systems’ 3D-printed biocompatible bolus products, we will be at the forefront of advancing personalized care and improving the patient experience.”
“Klarity has a strong reputation in the radiation oncology sector for delivering superior products and service,” says Menno Ellis, 3D Systems’ executive vice president, Healthcare Solutions. “The company’s commitment to improving patient care through treatment personalization aligns with 3D Systems’ market-leading service model for delivering high-quality 3D-printed, patient-specific medical devices for over two decades.”
3D Systems and Klarity will both participate in the 2023 ASTRO Annual Meeting to be held October 1-4 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA. Attendees interested in learning more are invited to stop by 3D Systems’ booth #2353 or Klarity’s booth #2317.
