Trivitron Develops Radiation Protective Wear For Medical Professionals

SpaceD Radiation aprons regulate heat in addition to providing radiation attenuation as specified in IEC and ASTM standards.

New Delhi: Medical technology innovators Trivitron Healthcare launched SpaceD Radiation protection aprons which use NASA's Outlast® technology to make the protective gear more comfortable and safe for medical professionals. These aprons utilize phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort during medical procedures.

Radiation Protection Gear is worn for long hours by healthcare professionals without any break which is why it is essential to make the protective gear comfortable in addition to providing radiation attenuation as specified in IEC and ASTM standards. These requirements, as the company noted, can be sufficed by the SpaceD Radiation aprons.

Overexposure to radiation leads to multiple negative health effects that can range from burns, radiation sickness, to permanent damage to the skin and bone-marrow, genetic mutation and cancer. Trivitron claims that this protective gear can safeguard against stochastic and deterministic effects of radiation which pose great threat to the health of medical professionals. It also manages temperature, heat, sweat, and moisture providing comfort while performing long surgical procedures.

Medtech Sector To Reach $50 Billion Market By 2025

Medical devices industries said that the there is a massive under-penetration of medical devices in the market, and there is indeed a growth opportunity of the sector.
