Radiation Protection

Radiation Protection

Adept Medical’s STARTable and IR Shield are effective ways to reduce clinician exposure to radiation. Both offer increased protection from scatter radiation in key areas of exposure.


LEAD PROTECTION
The vertical section of each shield contain 0.5mm thick Lead. The Lead is embedded inside the carbon-fibre body and as such is relatively lightweight, very durable and easy to clean.




IR SHIELD

Scatter Reduction
The mean reduction in scatter radiation with the C-Arm head in a PA (0°) orientation, for the operator at a waist equivalent height is 91% and at a neck equivalent height is 51%. See LINK for our full test report by an independent Medical Physicist.
