HeadPeace clinically validated

Sep 4, 2017

In a clinical study performed by researchers at Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Halland Regional Hospital, it was shown that HeadPeace reduces radiation dose to body parts that are currently not protected. 

Researchers at Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Halland Regional Hospital have conducted a clinical study with the objective to measure whether HeadPeace reduces radiation without limiting the overall working environment for operators and nurses. 

The result shows that HeadPeace reduces radiation to the head in clinical environment and does not adversely affect the workplace or behavior. Consequently, this means that HeadPeace has the potential to improve the working environment for operating staff through the effects of reduced radiation dose to body parts that are currently not protected. 

Ten Medical Design AB (10MD) is a medical technology company committed to providing innovative products for radiation protection to healthcare professionals.  10MD has developed HeadPeace based on the unique patented attenuating woven composite NAFT. Following a regulatory approval, HeadPeace is the innovative and comfortable way to protect medical personnel from scatter radiation during any interventional procedure.
