Elekta Harmony*

What has an emperor penguin got to do with our latest linear accelerator?

Balance.

Ice isn’t the best place for laying an egg, unless you’re an emperor penguin. Nature gave them feet designed to balance their precious cargo on until it hatches. It also handed incubating duties to the male so the female can go off to feed up in time for the arrival of the newborn—balanced care all the way. And to us, balance is as critical in the clinic as it is in nature.
