Radiation Protection

No matter how small, any dose of radiation has an associated risk of cancer, and this risk increases with greater exposure.Zero-Gravity provides a weightless 87-100% reduction in radiation exposure as compared with the combination of conventional lead aprons with table shields and movable shields.

Additionally, based on a revolutionizing woven textile technology, Texray AB has developed two novel head protectors: HeadPeace & MindPeace. Studies show an additional 75-97% radiation reduction when wearing Texray head protectors during endovascular procedures compared to wearing only a traditional thyroid collar.3, 4, 5
