Medical practitioners should not need to worry about their own health while saving the lives of others. For this reason, we have invented Texray the first radiation protection textile in the world. The textile is a patented technology platform and constitutes of a woven and breathable material with attenuating capacity and protects the user from harmful radiation.
Due to the inherent structure of Texray, it is possible to meet the need of more durable radiation protection garments, improving the ergonomic parameters such as anthropometrics, biomechanics, water vapor transport and thermal sensation, as compared competitive products.
VISION & MISSION
The benefits of X-ray guided interventions are immense and new products are continuously being introduced. For patients, it means procedures that are less invasive. For society, it means reduced healthcare costs due to shorter recovery time.
However - for medical practitioners, it means increased exposure to potentially harmful radiation. Having the best possible working environment is crucial in order to perform first-class surgery.
So Mrs Apell and Mr Gellerstedt decided to address this disparity. With more than 40 years of collective experiences in developing and distributing innovative products to the life science and healthcare sectors, they approached the challenge with open minds.
The first mission became clear: it was to develop a textile for radiation protection that would create peace of mind in the operating room.
