Hoshina announced Lead-free air-conditioned protective suit for Radiology Department staff

The Windpia 2, developed by Hoshina, is an air-conditioned lead-free protective suit for radiology department employees who spend the majority of their time around x-ray equipment.

“This is a protector used in medical settings in hospitals to protect the wearer from radiation. Windpia 2 provides the added value of revolutionary coolness never before available. Until now protectors have had poor ventilation causing the wearer to become sweaty. The Windpia 2′s installed fan causes evaporation within the protector, so it keeps the wearer from becoming sweaty even after many hours of wear.”

The use of lead-free sheets keeps the protector lightweight, and it also features a plastic back frame which helps transfer the bulk of the weight from the shoulders to the waist, enabling it to be worn for many hours.

“The price is still somewhat expensive at about 180,000 yen for the apron version and 230,000 yen for the coat version, but we will work to bring the price down moving forward.”
