Rampart IC, a Birmingham-based medical device company specializing in radiation shielding and orthopedic protection, announced a collaborative agreement with Boston Scientific to promote radiation safety and orthopedic protection solutions to medical professionals. The companies will work together on sales program offerings.
The Rampart IC system is already employed by several American healthcare systems. Rampart IC will handle direct sales within the United States, and the company has signed distribution agreements in the Middle East, Asia, Europe and North America, providing its radiation-shielding solution to healthcare professionals in 62 countries.
“I’m very excited about the next generation of operators who are going to be able to work in a better environment both from an orthopedic and radiation standpoint,” said Bob Foster, MD, Rampart IC Founder. “The 100-year-old solution of heavy aprons will soon become obsolete.”
In addition to its own international growth, Rampart IC has agreements to sell products in the United States for Fluke Corporation and Mavig GmbH, a provider of personal protective equipment used in hospitals.
