Radiation Protection Products
Z&Z Medical offers a variety of options to suit various needs of style, coverage, profession, and budgets. Extra features such as elastic belts that transfer the weight off of the shoulders and onto the hips, may help those who wear our aprons for long procedures. If you have a need for only occasional use, or heavy duty veterinarian applications, we have an apron to suit your needs.
PRESTIGE is the newest innovation in x-ray protection, the PRESTIGE lead-free apron – the lightest .5mm Pb equivalent apron, guaranteed! Prestige is 10% lighter than Starlite. These no-lead aprons are environmentally-friendly and verified by the The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to provide 0.50 mm radiation protection levels.
STARLITE contains no lead yet provides the same attenuation properties as Cost Cruncher and True Lite. Starlite is 12% lighter than True Lite. Most .50mm equivalent Starlite front protection aprons weigh approximately 10 lbs or less – that’s a big weight off your shoulders!
TRUE LITE was our introduction to lightweight lead protection. True Lite is 10% lighter than Cost Cruncher and offers the same attenuation properties. Bar-Ray introduced True Lite over 10 years ago and it is still the leader in lightweight lead protection.
COST CRUNCHER is our traditional weight lead protective material. It provides .50mm protection and attenuates 100% at 100 KVP. It is the most economical choice for the technician that does not need to wear the apron for long periods of time.
