The radiotherapy treatment of Softray is based on the utilization of low dose and orthovoltage X-ray therapy equipment. It clearly differentiates itself from other radiotherapy technologies used in cancer therapies targeted on in organs. Hence this makes the treatment safe, gentle and ideally suited for the superficial treatment of skin disorders and benign inflammatory joint diseases.

Further advantages of our technology compared to other radiotherapy technologies include the equipment’s small footprint, drastically lower investment as well as maintenance costs, and most importantly the comfort, safety and excellent treatment results for patients. These advantages have the potential to transform present care pathways and to contribute towards value-based health outcomes.

A single therapy cycle of low dose radiotherapy includes on average 10 (between 5 and 14) exposures at only a few minutes every two or three days.
