Satyaki Banerjee, CEO-Medical Imaging, Trivitron Healthcare highlights the uses of SpaceD Radioprotection Lightweight Aprons
Trivitron Healthcare mission is to assure the safety and health of medical professionals and with this approach to bring revolution in healthcare imaging and safety Trivitron launched NASA-approved SpaceD technology to make radiation safety as convenient as possible. Overexposure to radiation for the long term can lead to cause multiple health issues that can range from burns, permanent damage to the skin, hair loss, cell mutation, and even cancer. Exposure to a high dose of radiation can produce acute effects and this makes the use of radiation protection aprons and gears important to ensure healthy health.
SpaceD Radioprotection Lightweight Aprons are made using the microencapsulated technology that proactively manages heat while controlling the production of moisture or sweat before it begins and provides comfort to medical practitioners during long surgical hours. These lightweight radiation protection aprons are made using Nanoparticle-based antimicrobial fabric Satin Touch®, ZeroLead Air® core material, and Maxin® fabric, and Outlast® technology, originally developed for NASA. The phase change materials present in the aprons offer optimal thermal comfort by absorbing, storing, and releasing heat to provide excellent thermal comfort to the user.
During long surgical procedures or working for longer working hours, doctors and radiation technicians experience stress and fatigue due to wearing heavy aprons. Wearing lightweight SpaceD Radioprotection Aprons can regulate the surgeon’s body temperature during long procedures and avoid fatigue as it is lightweight along with the best radiation protection. This technology also provides comfort as it manages temperature, heat, sweat, and moisture can make one feel relaxed while performing long surgical procedures in operating rooms.
The Outlast® phase change materials used in SpaceD Radioprotection Aprons contain Thermocules™, a microencapsulated phase change materials that are permanently embedded and guarded in a polymer shell. This encapsulation method makes the Thermocules™ enduring for many applications. These Thermocules™ can absorb, store and release excess heat and offer the fabric the ability to continually regulate skin’s microclimate. As the skin gets hot, the heat is absorbed, and as it cools, that heat is released, offers the best regulation of skin microclimate
Switching to Advanced SpaceD Radioprotection Lightweight Aprons will magnify both the surgical outcomes and the make the doctor and technician more comfortable so they can perform their procedures more efficiently.
