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.

New Ppe Shield Covers Protect Patients
From COVID Touch Contamination!

America's medical system needs more reliable and comprehensive safety assured equipment to provide the highest quality of cleanliness and readiness possible, especially during this COVID pandemic. Our healthcare system's front-line radiology technologists need a radiation shield for patients that cannot be lost or misplaced and is easily and completely covered to best prevent COVID and other infectious disease contact or touch contamination.

A lost or misplaced radiation shield delays patient care and creates an urgency to find a replacement shield before the x-ray exam can be performed as required by state law. Patient care comes to a stop until a replacement shield is found. A tethered shield eliminates the problem of lost or misplaced radiation shields. Radiology equipment buyers should stop wasting money and time replacing lost patient radiation shields!

Cleaning a radiation shield is a required infection prevention, labor intensive, time consuming, inefficient and outdated hassle that is often skipped over. It frequently takes more time to clean the shield than to perform the x-ray exams, which means more work and longer exam performance times. Cleaning shields is absolutely inefficient and obsolete. The Zapp Shield's performance efficiency means tethered and completely covered radiation shields offer the best protection possible for every patient. Seeing is believing! The Zapp Shield replaces a 7 minute shield cleaning hassle with a less than 7 second impervious shield covering solution. Covering the shield is the most effective, efficient, and cost-effective means of ensuring shield cleanliness and readiness. The portable imaging cassette is no longer cleaned between patients. Instead, the cassette has been completely covered since 1995 ( 25 years ).

The Zapp Shield ensures shield cleanliness and readiness 24/7 for patient radiation protection when providing radiology patient safety care. The new Zapp Shield stops misplaced and contaminated patient radiation shields in 2021!
