Radiation Protection on Earth and Beyond

Radiation Protection on Earth and Beyond

The Threat

In the event of exposure to large doses of radiation, the immediate life-endangering threat is damage to the individual’s bone marrow, which results in anemia, infections and internal bleeding.

“Underlying bone marrow failure from the external whole body irradiation was the major contributor to all Chernobyl deaths during the first two months”.

United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation 2008

Our Solution

StemRad’s solution is to prevent the health effects of exposure to radiation by offering innovative measures to protect the stem cells present in the bone marrow and other sensitive tissues. The 360 Gamma selectively protects the body's largest reservoir of active bone marrow - the hip region. This is the only way to provide meaningful radiation protection while remaining mobile. Competing whole body solutions offer little to no protection from penetrating radiation such as gamma rays as they would have to weigh a quarter of a ton to do so.

“While whole body shielding is inherently heavy, partial body shielding is lighter in weight and selectively shields tissues of increased radiosensitivity (i.e. bone marrow) with substantial amounts of shielding material to protect hematopoietic functions; therefore, potentially preventing the acute health effects of exposure to gamma radiation (i.e. Acute Radiation Syndrome -ARS)”.
