MedAxiom is pleased to announce a new corporate partner: TIDI Products™, distributor of the suspended radiation protection system, Zero-Gravity™. With clinician safety and comfort as its primary benefits, the Zero-Gravity system provides greater protection against radiation doses in a virtually weightless design that allows for ease of movement and less strain on the body.
Zero-Gravity proves that protective gear can work to block radiation and significantly reduce the skeletal burden of traditional protective apparel. Zero-Gravity helps protect body parts normally exposed when wearing conventional lead aprons and a thyroid shield.
“In today’s environment, heart programs and hospitals are focused on creating safer, more efficient and pleasant work environments for their clinicians,” said Matt Opad, Zero-Gravity Product Manager. “By reducing weight put onto clinicians, Zero-Gravity can help improve provider health, happiness and extends careers. The combination of reduced exposure to radiation, less strain to the body with the freedom of movement means that clinicians can improve the quality and experience of the care they provide.”
Zero-Gravity’s weightless design also significantly reduces body strain—to back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles—that is common among interventional CV care providers.
It’s important to keep my physicians safe as well as comfortable,” said Janice Froehlich, Director of Cardiovascular Services, Lakewood Ranch Medical Center in Bradenton, FL. “Zero-Gravity has provided that to my cardiologists here in the Cath lab. On large volume days, physicians work harder and faster and more efficiently. My physicians are happy—and happy doctors make for happy patients.”
Cardiovascular care providers will have the opportunity to learn more about the many benefits of Zero-Gravity at the CV Transform Spring’17 conference, April 18-20, in Amelia Island, FL. The company is exhibiting as a corporate partner and hosting an educational spotlight lunch program, “Protecting Your People: A Critical Investment,” on April 19th.
