RST Thermally Conductive Demron Offers Unique Protection in the Treatment & Transportation of Ebola Victims

MIAMI, FL -RST's Demron Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) suits offer unique capabilities in the war against Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). Because of Demron's patented thermal conductive capabilities, Ebola health-care workers wearing Demron CBRN suits can be externally monitored for the onset of fever, one of the first signs of the disease. Additionally, patients that are infected can also be monitored and externally cooled when infection transportation chambers are lined with Demron. Ongoing testing in this area is being carried out by Dipl. Eng. Pavel Castulik, PhD at the Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment, Masaryk University, Czech Republic.

Demron, manufactured solely by Radiation Shield Technologies (RST), is the world's first and only CBRN fabric that provides chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear protection, while it allows for external temperature monitoring. The inherent ability of Demron fabric to allow for heat release and dissipation is the primary characteristic that makes external temperature management and monitoring possible. Infrared thermometers designed for non-contact temperature sensing are used to establish the base operational temperature of each health-care worker wearing a protective suit. Once an individual base line temperature has been documented, health-care professionals can randomly take non-contact readings to help to ensure the early detection of fever symptoms. Additionally, the ability to capture non-contact temperature readings outside of the suit has enhanced caregiver safety and the capacity to monitor patients during transport. RST is proud to contribute to the overall safety of health-care workers fighting the spread of the Ebola virus.

About Demron and Radiation Shield Technologies (RST) For more than 20 years, RST has pioneered high-performance, multi-hazard fabrics employing Demronfor military, firefighters, law enforcement and medical personnel. Demron combines the metallic properties of gamma radiation reduction, trauma reduction and thermal conductivity with advanced nano polymer technology, and is uniquely capable of providing true anti-nuclear protection and heat stress reduction without compromising chemical or biological hazard protection. 

Headquartered in Miami, FL, RST is an ISO 9001 & 13485 manufacturer and has received numerous awards including the NFPA 2007 2 certification. Whether used in a warm or hot zone, Demron provides the ultimate in universal protection against all CBRN hazards. Demron's product line currently includes full body suits, blankets, tents, and other products that have been used worldwide by every branch of the U.S. military, U.S. CST teams, the FDNY, IAEC, DSTA, NASA, and many international first responder and military teams in China, Iraq, Kuwait, South Korea, Pakistan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, and Singapore.
