Protech is the largest manufacturer and reseller of sterile 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.
