During patient examinations, X-ray technicians are routinely exposed to x-radiation. These portable x-ray shields were designed to provide protection as well as a maximum viewing area for technicians during the administration of patient x-rays. The large clear acrylic windows are specially formulated with lead salts to absorb radiation. This industrial product design was selected from a number of concepts which were provided based on different manufacturing methods, costs, and materials which affected the overall appearance as well as user interface. Our extensive experience in materials and manufacturing enabled us to develop a wide range of aesthetic options which are directly related to investment and cost efficiencies.
