Using a syringe normally takes two hands, and some care by the medical professional not to get stuck by the needle. At the same time, during more complex procedures and surgeries, it would be good to stay ‘hands-on’ with the patient.
The pictures show an invention that makes the procedure both safer and more flexible.
Using this innovative syringe the operators can remove the cap from the needle and detach the needle with one hand with zero risk of accidental needle-stick injuries.
Currently, healthcare operators use two hands for all the steps or try to do some of them with one hand thus risking an accidental needle-stick injury.
Doing the operation with the new syringe is safer as the hand using the syringe is always placed behind the needle and it leaves the other hand free, which makes the medical procedure itself more accurate and safer.
The two practicing consultants, who invented and prototyped the new design, are seeking a patent sale, under a financial agreement, or a production and distribution agreement under license. The partner is likely to be a manufacturer of medical consumables.
