Complete Medical Australasia - Post - Barriers are a good thing

Barriers – a good thing!

When you think about barriers or walls, there are lots of inspirational quotes that come to mind—about how we, as a society, typically tear these items down. We generally don’t think of these items as helpful or positive.

However, at Complete Medical Australasia, we take pride in creating barriers, shields, and curtains that are, indeed, protective and vital to the healthcare industry.

In Healthcare, Barriers Are a Good Thing!

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, lead barriers “provide protection from penetrating gamma rays and x-rays” and “inserting the proper shield between you and a radiation source will greatly reduce or eliminate the dose you receive.”

In fact, barriers that guard and protect against harmful radiation are utilized in many healthcare procedures involving:

  • X-Rays
  • Fluoroscopy
  • CTs
  • Mammography

Our lineup of barriers and shields allow healthcare professionals the flexibility of putting radiation protection exactly where they need it. This flexibility is especially critical to hospital emergency departments and other trauma care situations.

Our product range offers:

  • Mobile leaded barriers in a wide variety of sizes
  • Many leaded barriers featuring windows that allow vital eye contact with patients
  • Barriers that are mobile thanks to locking caster wheels that also features brakes. Many of our portable barriers are very heavy, so we recommend that two people move the barrier together at all times.
  • Mobility equals flexibility in repositioning barriers as needed—closer to patients during procedures or against a wall or out of the way when not in use.
