Zero Fatigue Aprons
The first and only X-ray Protective
Aprons ever to eliminate 100% of weight and contact at the

internal framework, these aprons have been designed to
entirely eliminate the Repetitive Stress and Fatigue
Problems of the upper back and extremities associated with

Here's how they work . . . .

designed lightweight thermoplastic supports. Beginning at
the waist of the garment, these supports are built into the

at the waist. Combined with the use of our adjustable height
back support belt, these supports pick up the weight of the
garment along their entire length, particularly at the
shoulders. This eliminates not only shoulder weight from the
apron, but also all contact at the shoulder.
