Head Frames

It gives us a special sense of satisfaction to be able to apply these talents to medical devices that are helping to save lives. GMT works with medical technology companies to produce the composite portions of their diagnostic and treatment systems. An example of this is the carbon fiber head frame. It is used during neurosurgery to immobilize the patient's head. Since carbon is radiolucent (it does not show up on x-rays) the surgeon can be looking at a clear, real-time scan of the tumor while actually performing surgery. Our product replaces metal head frames whose components block x-rays and thus hinder surgery.
