For about a year and a half, Burlington Medical researched and then developed a solution for managing the aprons that its sells. Hospitals often have 500 to 1,500 aprons or more within their facilities, distributed among the numerous departments in which imaging is carried out. The aprons, which contain materials that block X-ray radiation, are worn by staff members during imaging, in order to protect them from radiation exposure, and must be inspected by hospital employees on an annual basis to ensure that they are functioning properly.

Burlington Medical History

In 1969, Dennis Swartz established BMS as a small X-ray apron repair operation. As the industry grew, Burlington began to manufacture its own aprons, and recognized the need for custom fitting. A wider range of sizes for both women and men, along with custom sizing and custom embroidery, made BMS an industry leader. Our product offerings have continued to expand and include a full line of accessories. BMS strives for innovation and focuses our efforts on developing the lightest, most comfortable aprons available. As the market evolves, so do our efforts to provide you the best products available.
