See the components of and learn more about our Tumor Treating Fields delivery system below.
Ease of Portability
Tumor Treating Fields are generated via pairs of transducers arrays placed directly on the skin’s surface in the region surrounding the tumor.
Unlike previous applications of electricity in medicine, TTFields therapy does not deliver any electric current to the tissue. Our therapy does not stimulate nerves or muscles, or heat tissue. Instead, it creates an alternating electric field within the tumor that attracts and repels the charged components of the cancer cells during mitosis.
The complete delivery system includes a portable electric field generator, transducer arrays, rechargeable batteries and more. The portable therapy is designed to be delivered continuously throughout the day and night, and to allow patients to go about their daily activities while receiving treatment.
