CHANGE THE WAY YOU WORK, FOR GOOD.
Protect the Team. Shed the Lead
THE NEED FOR RADIATION PROTECTION IN DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY
Dr Bob Foster, one of America’s highest-volume and successful Interventional Cardiologist (IC), created Rampart along with a team of designers and engineers. When Dr. Bob Foster, a triathlete in peak physical health, suffered a second ruptured disk—an injury that caused a month-long paralysis in one of his legs and left him out of the cath lab for two years—he knew it was time to do something about the heavy lead aprons that he believed were the cause of his injuries.
And he wasn’t alone. In fact, with 60% of ICs suffering from work-related back issues, he soon discovered that many others were looking for a solution too.
Committing himself to find a more practical and functional alternative, Dr Foster designed Rampart to meet the unique needs of interventionalist cardiologists and technicians in cardiac catheter laboratories.
It Isn’t Just The Interventionalists In The Cath Lab. The whole team needs and deserves the best radiation protection
When it comes to radiation protection in medicine, it’s not just interventionists that need protection. The whole team needs and deserves radiation safety protection. Make your cath lab a safer, easier place to work with the Rampart IC M1128.
A HIGHLY PRACTICAL SOLUTION THAT PROVIDES MULTIPLE VASCULAR ACCESS POINTS
WHY CHOOSE RAMPART FOR YOUR CATH LAB?
Full Body Protection Against Radiation - For The Entire Team
Compared to standard lead aprons, which have 0.5mm of lead, Rampart offers twice the protection.1mm lead equivalent acrylic screens provide double the amount of lead between the medical professionals and scatter radiation. A lead apron protects only the person wearing it. Rampart provides protection for the entire team.
Allows For Freedom Of Movement
Cath labs can be crowded places. With Rampart, you enjoy more freedom of movement because there is no necessity to wear a lead apron. Without a cumbersome lead apron, members of the team are free to move around and perform their jobs with dexterity and precision. Rampart helps improve mobility, visibility, and communication in the laboratory.
Fully Adjustable Panels
Rampart consists of fully independent, adjustable, and motorised lead acrylic panels. Configure the panels to accommodate the access points required, and the heights and widths of the patient and the doctors working. Rampart provides multiple vascular access points, including radial, femoral, and pedal.
No More Awkward Lead Aprons
Rampart means less fatigue, pain, injuries, work-related back issues, time off sick, and missed work. It also means longer careers and happier, healthier medical employees
Fast And Easy To Set Up
Time is of the essence, and efficiency is imperative. Rampart has a strong, lockable base and smooth-rolling industrial casters making it easy to move, set up, and position as required.
Portable And Convenient To Store
Space needs to be optimised in a cardiac catheter laboratory. Designed to be portable and with a small footprint, Rampart is compact and convenient to store.
Rampart IC M1128—Tech specs
The motorised lead acrylic panels are designed to be fully adjustable to account for access points and the heights and widths of the doctor, technician, and patient.
Adjust as required according to vascular access position. Rampart allows multiple vascular access points, including right radial, bi-lateral femoral, and bi-lateral pedal.
Quick to set up, easy to position, and convenient to store with an overall small cath lab footprint.
Rampart comes with a sterile drape kit comprising five separate drapes, designed and easily labelled for fast and easy setup and cleaning.
