Radiation Shield Technologies (RST) is the sole producer of Demron® , a revolutionary lightweight, non-toxic, Lead-free, radiation protection fabric for individuals. Through a distinctive technology 8 years in the making, RST has perfected the development of this unique garment that can effectively shield the human body against ionizing radiation, while leaving its wearer unencumbered and fully mobile. Using a patented nanotechnology, Demron® is currently manufactured into full body suits, blankets, tents, and other products to protect individuals during any radiological/nuclear emergency.
Developed by world-renowned surgeon Ronald F. DeMeo, MD, Demron® was originally created to protect medical personnel and patients from the harmful effects of X-ray radiation in the operating room. “I’ve worked around radiation my entire career, and I have seen what it can do to the human body, even at low levels. Demron® was my way to better protect myself in the O.R., and bring something better to the people who work around radiation every day.” Dr. DeMeo developed Demron® as a way to finally shed light on the archaic field of radiation protection. “Until now, we’ve simply ignored the threat of radiation because there was nothing that could be done. Lead has been the standard for over 50 years; a toxic, heavy, impractical standard to say the least.”
