MAVIG GmbH (Munich, Germany) is presenting its latest innovations and developments in X-ray protection and medical suspension systems at the 2022 edition of MEDICA, the world's largest trade fair for medical technology, being held from 14 to 17 November in Düsseldorf, Germany.

MAVIG is demonstrating its proven product range of X-ray protective clothing at MEDICA 2022, including the new Levio Edition. The company’s Levio Edition X-ray protective clothing consists of two layers of radiation protection material. The first, long protective layer, the basic protective layer, extends to the knee, as required in IEC 61331-3:2014 / DIN EN 61331-3:2016; chapter “5.2 Design”. This basic radiation protective layer is designed for the minimum lead equivalent of a radiation protection apron of 0.25 mm Pb.

A shorter, second layer of radiation protective material, the Levio panel, is added in the area of the organs that are particularly sensitive to radiation, from above the chest to below the gonads, so that the complete mammary gland tissue is covered down to and including the gonads. In order to achieve the greatest possible weight reduction, MAVIG manufactures the Levio panel specifically tailored to the individual according to the respective body measurements. In this way, MAVIG produces individually suitable X-ray protective clothing for each user of radiation. The concept presented and the resulting development of X-ray protective clothing can be implemented on a user specific basis for selected MAVIG models.

Visitors to the company’s booth at MEDICA 2022 can experience MAVIG’s portfolio of protection and suspension systems, including the Portegra2 Ceiling Suspension systems that feature maximum safety and high flexibility. The Portegra2 system is an innovative solution for the protection of the head, eyes, thyroid gland, upper arms and extremities from scattered radiation. The components can be assembled in the manner of a modular system and can be tailored to individual requirements. The stable Portegra2 systems from MAVIG are optimally designed for everyday use in clinics or radiological practices.
