What made a difference

The Cyberknife conveys calm through the integration of colors rarely seen in hospitals or clinics. A willingness to put aside typical expectations of medical devices helped set this design project apart. Considered choices, such as the use of gentle green lighting to cue robot movement, meant that patients stay informed, without harsh red or white lights.

Accuray has taken personalized cancer care to a new level. Already used by clinicians in global radiation oncology programs, the Cyberknife system offers expanded and individualized treatment options, aiding more patients than ever before. Our panel and cable management designs allowed for a new robot orientation and an increased base height that enabled the robot to reach new parts of the body for treating breast cancer patients, something that could previously not be done.
