Kiran Medical Systems has launched ZeroLead Air series of radiation protection aprons in India.

Radiation protection aprons are an essential accessory worn by healthcare providers during most medical procedures involving ionizing radiation. They play a cardinal role in protecting the healthcare providers from the damaging effects of ionizing radiation generated by X-ray systems, C-Arm systems, Cathlabs, Fluoroscopy Systems and CT.

Radiation protection aprons are heavy and considering the fact that most healthcare providers need to wear such Aprons for extended durations every day, it affects the general comfort and puts a lot of strain on the joints during long procedures.

These aprons are 10% lighter than existing ZeroLead aprons without compromising the radiation attenuation levels.

The use of novel plasticizers ensure that the Aprons offer a soft and supple feel further enhancing the comfort.
