Thyroid Collar – Radiation Protection
EDM understands the importance of appropriate full-frontal protection of your medical staff. The thyroid collar is a standard fit covering both the lower and upper area of the neck to provide complete protection against any radiation. This collar is available in a variety of sizes: small, medium, large and extra-large — allowing it to fit the neck circumference of any user. This style also offers flexibility and comfort with several closure options that will securely fit all neck sizes.
The thyroid collar is offered in a standard design and an original design that can be chosen according to the user’s preference. The original design features a wide band covering the upper portion of the neck for full coverage. The standard design sets on the lower part of the user’s neck while in use to provide shielding for the thyroid area. Both designs and closure options provide complete coverage from harmful radiation. The velcro and buckle closures attach behind the neck allowing the collar to easily be put on and taken off.
This standard thyroid collar is an essential accessory to go along with your radiation apron, as it is made for long-term use with standard lead equivalence. Medical personnel will have full neck and thyroid protection with our customizable thyroid collars. If you have any questions or have unique needs, please feel free to contact our team of radiation protection specialists.
