ProGuard™ Radiation Reducing Gloves

The protection of hands against radiation requires particular consideration due to the direct and repeated exposure of primary rays in many different types of procedures. The ProGuard™ range reduces the quantity of ionising radiation reaching the hands by up to 55% whilst still being thin enough to provide excellent gripping and perfect dexterity.

Features

  • Lead oxide impregnated to reduce the amount of ionising radiation reaching the hands by up to 55%
  • Only 0.22mm or 0.30mm in thickness for perfect dexterity
  • Latex deprived of an allergic proteins minimise the risk of allergies
  • Synthetic interior layer to further reduce allergic reactions
  • Wide range of sizes from 6-9 including half sizes for a better fit.
  • Available in 0.300mm (0.012″) and 0.220mm (0.0088″) finger tip thickness
  • Soft, Comfortable and easy to wear

This product was developed with the physicians’ needs in mind – it provides the ideal combination of radiation reduction, flexibility, comfort and sensitivity.

The ProGuard™ gloves are adapted for all users exposed to ionising radiation, as is usually the case in the following interventions: Haemodynamics, Endoscopy, Radiology, Neuroradiology, Urology, Intensive Care, Reanimation, Orthopaedics and Nuclear Medicine.

  • ProGuard™ gloves have the same anatomic shape, softness, elasticity and comfort of typical surgical gloves.
  • Manufactured from latex rubber impregnated with lead oxide, there are 3 different levels of thickness and radiation protection.
  • The latex has deprived of allergic proteins, so these gloves are perfect for sensitive skinned users.
  • Designed for single use, ProGuard™ gloves offer optimal quality and radiation protection levels each time they are used.
  • One of the thinnest gloves on the market, they enable excellent gripping, dexterity, and high tactile sensitivity.
  • Interior synthetic layer not only reduces the risk of allergies further but facilitates the donning of the glove.
