The Gold Standard in Radiation Protection™

 


Worldwide Innovations & Technologies, Inc. (WIT), headquartered in Kansas City, was founded in July, 1992 with the purpose of developing and marketing radiation protection products. While there are many industries where radiation protection is an important issue, WIT believed that the need in the medical industry should be one of the first addressed. WIT was specifically interested in providing radiation protection for physicians and medical personnel who are regularly exposed to scatter radiation.

 

For the first five plus years, WIT’s focus was on research and development to create an environmentally friendly, reasonably priced product that would attenuate radiation effectively. RADPAD® emerged from WIT’s developmental years. RADPAD® products are lead free and can be sterilized as necessary. They are completely disposable and create no environmental issues. Further, the RADPAD products allow medical facilities to comply with the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) standard of the radiation protection industry.

 

After the primary developmental work was completed, WIT’s focus turned to manufacturing and commercialization of the products. Product marketing and sales essentially began in the U.S. in 1998. In 2002, WIT expanded its medical market focus internationally by initiating sales in Canada and Japan. In 2007 and 2009, RADPAD® radiation protection products were introduced into the European and Middle East markets, respectively.

Development of new products has continued throughout the years and has resulted in a broad line of products designed specifically for interventional radiologists, cardiologists, electrophysiologists and vascular surgeons.

 

WIT has also developed a line of products designed to protect patients from unnecessary exposure to radiation.

In 2017, WIT received the 25 Under 25 Small Business Award, which annually recognizes 25 outstanding Kansas City Businesses.
