There are a number of different medical procedures carried out in hospitals where the physicians have to use x-rays as an assistance during the procedure. During these procedures, the medical staff are required to use heavy, cumbersome and also expensive protective equipment such as aprons, jackets to be protected from the harmful radiation. exRayMat is a unique and innovative device that is placed on the patient instead. The exRayMat is proven to reduce harmful radiation to a minimum and at the same time it takes away the need for the heavy protective equipment, resulting in a much better and healthier work environment for the medical staff.
