OPASCA Safety Suite
The OPASCA Safety and Wellbeing Suite offers a range of safety mechanisms to support your clinical routines as well as providing a positive environment to aid patient and staff wellbeing.
Individual modules such as audio-visual room monitoring, radiation detection or video-based patient and setup validation can be combined to form an integrated safety system that protects everyone involved in the process, all while optimising your workflow.
Direct communication between staff and patients, with software and hardware specifically developed for the conditions of radiation.
Video-based room analysis provides continuous monitoring of the treatment room in real time and detects persons or objects in the treatment room that do not belong there.
The active validation of the patient by facial recognition offers a reliable way to automatically verify the patient’s identity.
Personal protection through reliable in-situ measurement of the current radiation in compliance with legal requirements.
Patient individual settings of music and room light ensure a pleasant treatment atmosphere.
Audio-visual connection to familiar persons outside the treatment room. Reduces stress and facilitates communication with children and foreign-language patients.
Simple feedback with respiratory-assisted treatment techniques by changing the colour of the room light.
Video-based validation of immobilisation device setup increases safety and improves efficiency.
OPASCA’s Audio Visual Monitoring offers uninterrupted communication between staff and patients. The software and hardware are specifically developed for the harsh conditions of radiation, providing high-resolution real-time images thanks to durable, wide angle cameras. The reliable intercom filters out background noise, while the radiation-resistant camera system offers up to 30x zoom capability. The system is operated by an intuitive touch screen control unit.
OPASCA Audio Visual Monitoring
Based on video-supported room analysis, the OPASCA Personal Safety solution guarantees maximum protection against unintentional irradiation. The software displays a warning when it detects there are persons or objects in the treatment room that do not belong there. The final release and confirmation remains with the personnel.

OPASCA Patient Validation records the individual biometric facial features of the patient. For follow-up appointments, the software compares the match of the current patient with the loaded patient data. Release or feedback on discrepancies is sent directly to the staff at the console.
OPASCA Patient Validation
OPASCA Radiation Detection provides reliable feedback on potentially hazardous radiation doses in the treatment room. If a local dose above the threshold is measured, access must first be granted manually by the personnel. The continuous storage of all measurements enables weekly, monthly or annual evaluations.

OPASCA Ambience allows patients to select individual music, image and light settings for their treatment. The system offers preset thematic scenarios for sound, light and image output and the option to choose from royalty free songs or connect personal mobile devices. The positive atmosphere has a calming effect and helps patients to feel safe and secure.
OPASCA Face-to-face provides effective communication through a bidirectional live video stream. Staff, parents, interpreters, partners or friends can offer instructions and support to calm and aid the patient via a mobile communication unit outside the treatment room. Visual contact is highly effective when communicating with paediatric patients, potentially removing the need for anaesthesia.
The active involvement of patients is particularly important in respiratory-assisted treatments in order to protect healthy surrounding tissue. OPASCA Gating Feedback provides intuitive, understandable feedback on the patient’s respiratory behaviour via changes in the room light colour. The system utilises the same hardware as OPASCA Ambience, and can be easily integrated with numerous respiratory tracking systems.
OPASCA Gating Feedback
OPASCA Setup Validation provides staff with easy-to-understand guidance on the positioning of immobilisation devices. The system detects whether the type, position and patient-specific configuration are correctly set. Visual feedback on necessary adjustments is displayed on monitors in the treatment room. Treatment is only possible when the positioning corresponds to the last configuration stored for the patient.
