- Accepted and presented at LINC 2020.
Researchers at Sahlgrenska university hospital and 10MD performed in 2019 a phantom study to measure the reduction of radiation exposure of the novel products HeadPeace and MindPeace. The scientific data was submitted in December 2019 and was accepted for presentation at LINC (Leipzig interventional course) in Germany - that took place in January 2020.
”Our data on the novel thyroid collar MindPeace was considered of high scientific value by the scientific committee of LINC 2020. As a physicist, I am excited to present this data to medical specialists from all over the world”, says Dr Maria Larsson, Sahlgrenska university hospital, Sweden.
A novel thyroid collar
In clinical interventions, medical personnel are subjected to X-ray exposure. Lead shields and personal protection equipment (PPE) are routinely used, but they are sometimes difficult to position and, as a result, the head and extremities may be poorly protected. To address this situation, 10MD has developed HeadPeace, covering the upper section of the head and MindPeace, a novel thyroid collar specifically designed and developed to minimize radiation exposure towards the middle and lower sections of the head (patent pending, 10MD, Sweden).
LINC (Leipzig interventional course) is an interdisciplinary live course designed to provide a global platform for different medical specialities that perform endovascular interventions e.g. Vascular Surgeons, Interventional Radiologists, Angiologists and Cardiologists. LINC attracts around 5 0000 delegates from all over the world and researchers are offered the opportunity to submit abstracts of their scientific work. An international scientific committee accept relevant abstracts to be presented during the meeting.
Ten Medical Design AB (10MD) is a technology company committed to improving the working environment for professionals. 10MD has developed the world's first radiation protection textile - TeXray. TeXray enables the design of ergonomic and more comfortable personal protection equipment. 10MD has been granted patents in the USA, EU, Japan, Russia and Australia for the TeXray material platform.
