Emergency and Rescue Personnel
First-responders are the first line of defense when it comes to nuclear catastrophes. They are the first on the scene, and the first to face the unknown risk of exposure to deadly radiation. StemRad has developed the 360 Gamma wearable shield, the first of its kind, which protects first-responders from the deadly effects of exposure to gamma radiation. Protection from gamma radiation, while at the same time allowing for full mobility, was not possible before StemRad brought its revolutionary 360 Gamma to market. Its introduction allows for an expanded set of response possibilities to nuclear catastrophes.
With StemRad's shield, first-responders, like those who selflessly responded to the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown in 1986, will not have to sacrifice their lives to protect us. The Chernobyl first-responders had to enter the damaged reactor in order to put out the raging fire, but this exposed them to high-levels of gamma radiation, damaging their bone marrow. Within a few weeks, bone marrow failure led to their deaths. Their bodies had lost the ability to produce new blood cells, due to bone marrow failure. Had these first-responders been wearing the StemRad 360 Gamma, it is very likely that almost all of them would still be with us today. With the 360 Gamma, when you encounter gamma radiation, you will be protected, and you will be able to perform your life-saving tasks with confidence.
