Today, MagShoe™ shoe-scanning device developer IDO Security Ltd. announced that distributors in Belgium, the Netherlands, and the U.K. have ordered its new, state-of-the-art MagShoe™ 3G/4 model.
Commenting on the orders, Dani Werber, IDO’s International Marketing Manager, remarked, “The new 3G/4 model of the MagShoe™, recently showcased at the 2010 SICUR International Security Safety Exhibition in Madrid, Spain, conforms to all detection requirements and provisions of the EU regarding Airport and Aviation Security. Together with the increased height detection, the new MagShoe™ has garnered a great deal of interest from European authorities.”
Most screening technologies stop just above the ankles when scanning for concealed weapons, but MagShoe™ surpasses the competition by addressing this key vulnerability. The portable, user-friendly MagShoe™ device extends metal detection to include the lower extremities. It now covers everything from eighteen inches to the bottoms of the feet without requiring passengers to remove their shoes, thanks to its patented “step-on” design.
“We are extremely pleased with the reception our 3G/4 model has received in the European security market,” said Henry Shabat, Manager of IDO Security Ltd. “Based on the initial response from our client and distributor base, we fully expect to have further announcements regarding additional clients in the very near future.”
