HeadPeaceTM is a head protector designed to reduce radiation exposure in the upper section of the head.
HeadPeace is a personal protection equipment (PPE) and intended to reduce the cranial exposure to ionizing radiation for medical practitioners during clinical interventions. HeadPeace has a patented design and studies show it reduces radiation exposure of upper section of the head1. The design of HeadPeace is ergonomic verified2, comfortable and facilitates for longterm performance, without jepordizing on safety.
HeadPeace is manufactured out of Texray that is a patented3 technology platform and constitutes of a woven and breathable textile with attenuating capacity and protects the user from harmful radiation. The textile allowes vapor transport due to properties of Texray. The CE mark shows that HeadPeace meets the essential safety and performance requirements for personal protection equipment (PPE). HeadPeace 0.25 mm Pb complies with IEC 61331:2014 and is certified in accordance with EU Regulation 2016/425. HeadPeace is available in three different sizes: small, medium and large. Choose size based on head circumference based on our size-guide.
A pilot study to evaluate the ability of HeadPeace to reduce radiation doses to the operator’s head in clinical routine interventions was performed by researchers at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Sweden. Thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD) were positioned to measure scattered radiation towards the operator's head during X-ray guided interventions. In total, 42 measuring points at different positions were used on the inside and outside of HeadPeace. The TLDs were worn for a month. The absorbed dose was significantly lower on the inside of HeadPeace, compared to nearest measuring points outside HeadPeace (p-value < 0.01). The researchers concluded that HeadPeace reduces radiation exposure by up to 20 times towards the operator’s head in clinical routine interventions.
HeadPeace was recently clinically proven for its functionality and usability in clinical environments. Researchers at the Centre for Health Technology Halland (HCH), Halmstad University, Sweden, investigated how HeadPeace affects anthropometric, biomechanic and ergonomic parameters during clinical interventions. They concluded that 100% of the respondents experienced great functionality and usability of HeadPeace in clinical environments:
• Easy to use
• Adequate fit and compatible with eyeglasses
• No negative effect on head and work postures
