Alpha and beta radiation are easily blocked by standard HAZMAT suits or even normal clothing. It is important, however, to wear a mask to prevent inhalation or ingestion of alpha or beta emitting particles.
Today, we are happy to offer a consumer version of the 360 Gamma to everyone, including civilians. It is a discounted version of the 360 Gamma that is ideal for non-demanding use yet provides the same level of protection. To buy, it is best if you call or send us an e-mail
Past solutions attempted to protect the whole body from radiation and therefore were very thin due to the heavy weight of gamma shielding materials. This made them ineffective in preventing Acute Radiation Sickness (ARS).
The 360 Gamma may sound heavy, but it is placed on the body’s center of gravity so the experience is comparable to wearing a hikers backpack. Moreover, the 360 Gamma is not meant to be worn for long periods of time.
In a high-dose scenario, the 360 Gamma dramatically increases your chances of survival as opposed to dying within a few weeks. The likelihood of cancer is increased among exposed individuals but marginally and only years to decades after exposure.
No one intends to be exposed to this kind of radiation but it is not always possible to predict dose rates, as they fluctuate both temporally and spatially. Temporally, the dose rate at a given moment may not be the dose rate after a few seconds. Spatially, the dose rate a few meters away may be hundreds of times higher, especially in a structural environment.
The StemRad MD is in the final stages of development and will be available to the general medical community in early 2020. For now, we are offering samples of the product to select medical teams globally. If you wish to sample our solution, please contact us by phone or e-mail.
