What is the Slide Stop for?

The Slide Stop prevents patients from sliding down the board.


What are the advantages of the indexed BreastSTEP compared with the conventional BreastSTEP?

The indexed BreastSTEP is much lighter because the carbon fibre baseplate has no connection to the Slide Stop (also making it much shorter.) Both parts of the indexed BreastSTEP are fixed separately on the table by using indexing bars. If the tables are not indexed, it is possible to use independent indexing clamps.

The conventional model comes in one piece and has no possibility to fix it on the table. The advantage of the conventional BreastSTEP is that it’s moveable with the patient on the board. Both systems have the same unctionality of height, arm and wrist adjustments.


Are the indexed and conventional models compatible?

Yes, the arm and wrist supports can be used on both systems, also the slide stop.


When is the Pillow High necessary?

The Pillow High could be necessary for patients with a short or less flexible neck.


Each System BreastSTEP comes with PU covers, when would an additional set be necessary?

New covers are necessary when they are used up.


What are the benefits of the WingSTEP compared with the BreastSTEP?
