Breakthrough Protection
Made Simple

Until now, there has not been a radiation protection strategy that protects the entire Cath lab team. An integrated work platform built on a carbon fiber sled base designed to drastically reduce scatter radiation exposure without disrupting workflow.

Radiation Exposure Causes Significant Health Risk For The Cath Lab Team

• Interventional teams face increasing amounts of scatter radiation exposure because of an increase in the number of complex PCIs performed in the cath lab.

• The number of TAVR, CTO’s, Multi-Vessel, Peripheral and Endovascular procedures are increasing and require longer exposures to ionizing radiation than PCI alone.

• These advancements are putting interventional teams’ long-term health at risk, linking to a series of significant health effects like cataracts, cancer, skin lesions, hypertension, neuro-degenerative disease and more generalized adverse health effects.

Interventional Physicians Have the Highest Radiation Exposure of All Professions

Occupational Risk From Scatter Radiation

  • 1 in 25 high volume operators will acquire a radiation caused cancer

  • 1 in 50 high volume operators will die as a result of radiation acquired disease

  • The positions near the head and chest receive the most scatter radiation
