Protect the Spine and Shoulders with ShieldX
ShieldX, worn under the radiation shield apron, is an effective exoskeleton that reduces spinal loading by transferring the entire apron weight from the shoulders to the buttocks and hips. The low profile design can be worn under most aprons, all day long, without the user's shoulders, neck, or back feeling fatigued.
The patented frame design is adapted from the award winning shoulderX technology and conforms to each users unique body shape while promoting healthy standing postures. Aircraft grade aluminum and durable polycarbonate transfer the loads along the spinal column, while a breathable mesh hammock and plush hip padding comfortably secure the frame to the body. Optional fans provide active cooling, sucking air from the apron's cavity around the legs and blowing it upwards towards the head and arms.
