Back Relief Apron from Protech Medical
The Back Relief apron has been designed to transfer the weight to the hips so the weight of your apron is not supported by your shoulders and back. The apron features a very comfortable padded belt system constructed with a bonded elasticized panel for comfort & support. For those of you who wear your apron for long periods of time, the Back Relief apron is a great way to go. Combine this style with the lightest non-lead material and you will be as comfortable as you can possibly get while wearing an x-ray apron.
Don’t forget to add a thyroid collar to your order for complete protection. The thyroid collar will be the same fabric as the apron. If you would like a different color for your collar, please add a note at checkout indicating your prefered collar color. Choose your collar preference in the options on the right.
Choose your size based on the size chart below. If you need an apron that falls in the 3X or larger size range, please contact us at the email or phone number listed above and we will provide a quote based on your size needs and preferred type of protection.

Our lead free vinyl is 20% lighter. It is environmentally safe and can be disposed of through normal waste procedures.
