Submitted by DrFrasierCrane
DrFrasierCrane writes: You think you feel weighed down when your dentist lays that lead apron on you to take X-rays: how about the doctors who deal with radiation treatments and have to wear those aprons all day long? A Dallas, Texas, doctor has created a "zero gravity" radiation suit for just that problem. From the article: "Physicians are supposed to wear a lead apron during those procedures. It is back-breakingly heavy and doesn't cover the body completely." The zero gravity suit eliminates the weight and the exposed openings.
