Tired of Cleaning Shields After Every Patient?
Try the Tethered & PPE Covered Zapp Shield

Radiology examinations performed today frequently face two patient safety problems. One problem is radiation shields for patients are sometimes misplaced or "disappear" and are 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twice for each patient, is very labor intensive, time consuming which slows down the exam performance and is an outdated nuisance, that is if you can find the right cleaning materials.

All 50 states regulations require the optimal patient shielding possible in compliance with the ALARA principle. The Zapp Shield solves today's front-line problems with consistent and reliable shield availability and cleanliness. The auto-retractable tether keeps the shield in place and eliminates the yearly cost of (lost) replacement shields.The patient protective equipment (PPE) cover keeps the shield clean. The shield cover prevents patient touch contamination which interrupts the chain of infection. You can break the chain of COVID and other infectious diseases by cleaning your hands before covering the shield. Safety transparency is most effective and convincing when actually witnessed by the patient.Stop wasting time cleaning...

The Covered Shield Is More Reliable & Efficient Than Cleaning The Shield

COVID has exposed many weak links in every aspect of life including patient safety in hospitals. The cleanliness status of radiation shields for patients is one weak link. Misplaced and unclean shields are frequent problems for front-line Technologists who provide medical imaging procedures in hospitals. Seeing is believing! The covered shield replaces a 7 minute shield cleaning session ( before and after each patient's exam combined) with a less than 7 seconds shield covering solution. A covered shield eliminates the need to find gloves, wipes, disinfectant, time spent wiping and a countertop to clean it on. Covering the shield is the most effective, efficient and affordable protection that ensures shield cleanliness and readiness 24/7 for the most comprehensive and reliable patient shield safety possible. The Zapp Shield is a problem solver that brings the hassle of cleaning patient radiation shields out of the 1950's. The portable x-ray/imaging cassette has been covered since 1995 ( 25 years ).

The PPE shield cover is an infection prevention fix that stops the spread of COVID contamination. The PPE works by placing the shield inside of a clear glove-like cover to keep it clean to protect each patient. That's a big deal that makes a convincing difference in reducing patient exposure to x-ray tube scatter and germ contamination. The Zapp Shield is needed on the Radiology Tech front-line, especially in ICU and Emergency Departments. Many Technologists secretly admit they often skip over cleaning the shield due to the amount of time required and the hassle involved. The problems happen behind the scene in all Radiology Departments.The Zapp Shield removes the urge to take short cuts. Stop wasting time searching for misplaced shields and say good-bye to cleaning and disinfecting shields after every patient. The Zapp Shield showcases patient safety transparency with a PPE-shield cover that streamlines efficiency and builds verifiable patient safety trust. The Zapp Shield is a re-engineered radiation shield that sells itself by solving two long term problems of misplaced and contaminated patient radiation shields in hospitals.
