Prevent COVID Contact. Try the new Tethered
& PPE Covered Radiation Shields for Patients!

Radiology examinations performed at the patient's bedside often present two patient safety problems. One problem is radiation shields for patients are often missing or misplaced and not available when needed. The other problem is the shield's cleanliness status is questionable. Cleaning shields properly, twice for each patient, is very labor intensive, time consuming and an out-dated nuisance, that is if you can find the right cleaning materials.

Try the new Zapp Shield, a dual purpose radiation shield that keeps the shield in place and keeps the patient protective equipment (PPE) covered shield clean. The shield cover prevents patient touch contamination which interrupts the chain of infection. We can break the chain of COVID and other infectious diseases by cleaning our hands properly before completely covering the shield to protect the patient.
