Protech is the largest manufacturer and reseller of sterile radiation attenuation gloves in the world. Over 20 years ago, we educated healthcare professionals on the importance of wearing lead gloves during x-ray radiation procedures. With our high quality radiation reducing glove brand, ProGuard, Protech became a world leader in x-ray protection for the hands. Our gloves are made from the highest quality ingredients and go through rigorous testing standards.STUDIES
A healthcare worker could receive more than twice the annual limit of radiation exposure simply by holding the head of a trauma patient four times per week with unshielded hands during cervical spine radiography (National Center for Biotechnology). The National Council on Radiation Protection & Measurements recommends an annual limit of occupational radiation exposure to the skin, hands, and feet at 500 milli-sievert.STYLES
Protech offers 2 different types of lead gloves: (1) sterile radiographic protection gloves and (2) heavy lead gloves.
ProGuard radiographic protection gloves offset the danger of scatter beam radiation exposure and direct x-ray beam radiation. Throughout procedures requiring the use of fluoroscopy, high tactile attenuation gloves will reduce the amount of radiation you are exposed to while still enabling a successful procedure. Protech's world renowned attenuation glove brand, ProGuard, is now latex free and comes in 3 models: RR1, RR2, RR3. We also have sleeves.
Heavy duty lead gloves are made for positioning, veterinary, or other procedures requiring heavy x-ray use.
