The Soter RS is used successfully at many prisons for scanning visitors and inmates.

For example, attempts to smuggle in drugs, weapons and cell phones are carried out in many ways. The contraband is sometimes hidden in the body to escape stringent security checks. Strip searching is required to find contraband. However, the process of strip searching has many disadvantages. It is an intense and unpleasant process that is not always effective.

An alternative to strip searching is the deployment of the Soter RS body scanner. Different prisons across the world have already started using the Soter RS to prevent the smuggling of drugs, weapons and cell phones.


The Soter RS uses a minuscule dose of radiation and is therefore harmless. The dose absorbed is lower than 2 ┬ÁS. Prison officers can operate the Soter RS without the need for any formal specialist training.

Fast and easy

The Soter RS is extremely simple and fast. The person to be scanned stands on a platform that is transported from left to right. This process takes about 10 seconds and during that period an x-ray image is generated. The image shows the entire body and all contraband is revealed in it. The Soter RS makes it impossible to smuggle contraband in the human body.
