The revolutionary StemRad 360 Gamma is the world’s first wearable shield that provides first responders and emergency workers with life-saving protection from deadly gamma radiation. The shield’s full compatibility with existing PPE and its optimized design, provide the wearer with the mobility required to perform life-saving tasks in the event of a nuclear catastrophe.
When exposed to high-levels of gamma radiation, the immediate concern to individuals is that of Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS), also referred to as radiation sickness. In such cases, damage to the body’s bone marrow leads to fatal aplastic anemia, the hallmark of which is a severe lack of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. The pelvic bones contain the body’s largest concentration of bone marrow, so protecting them from the harmful effects of gamma radiation is crucial. The StemRad 360 Gamma is worn around the pelvic area, affording highly effective protection to the body’s “life factory.” In situations of exposure to high doses of gamma radiation this could mean the difference between life and death.
