TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

This is a medical device, a syringe, which solves the problem of the danger of infecting patients and health care workers with diseases that can be transmitted by injecting with an already used needle.

With this new syringe model, you can apply the drug quickly while protecting yourself. It is intended for single use only. The dosage is much easier because it has two measuring scales. The volume is 15ml but can be changed as needed because it can be produced in different sizes. The disinfection mechanism is in the syringe, and one of the novelties is that the needle has no contact with the healthcare worker applying the therapy.

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

The novelty of this model is that it will no longer require the wiping of the patient’s skin with an alcohol swab and also the process of needle fitting to the syringe which is additional waste of time. This new syringe model has its own disinfectant, adjusting therapy dosage is easier because there are two measuring scales that allow the most accurate dosage. Time of application of the drug does not exceed one minute and is much shorter than today's models. The healthcare worker has no contact with the patient while injecting the medicine. It is compatible for any type of therapy (muscle, venous etc). It is practical for one-time use only due to the prevention of reuse by the inserted block design. It is compatible for use with any size of medical needles, specifically intended for rapid intervention and is precise and safe. Compared to the usage of older models, where 29.2% of healthcare workers annually suffer from a variety of illnesses such as Hepatitis B, HIV etc. This new model keeps the percentage to a minimum and users of this model will be guaranteed protection.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

Primary application area are the health care institutions and health care givers (hospitals, pensions houses, rehabilitation centers, dentist clinics).

Veterinary is the second market on which this multifunctional syringe might be applied. 
Syringes market worldwide is projected to grow by US$9.7 Billion, driven by a compounded growth of 7.4%. Prefilled Syringes are poised to reach over US$10.6 Billion by the year 2025.

Benefits

The application of this product is specific in clinical medicine and veterinary and also in dentistry in certain situations. It can be used in all specialties in the field of medicine but would be most needed in emergency medicine, traumatology, military medicine, because it is extremely reliable and fast for use in a very short time. In veterinary it can be extensively applicable because the animals as patients are aggressive, i.e. they react reflexively and with this model both the animal and the veterinarian are protected. This syringe can be resized to volume, too.
