Did you hear about an incident in North Philadelphia last week, in which a third grader brought her mother’s diabetic small-gauge needle to school and stuck 19 students? Here is a home device, super-powered by over 2500° Fahrenheit of plasma, that would eliminate the needle in the first place.
Safeguard Medical Technologies, LLC., the maker of the device, explains:
The DISINTEGRATOR is a portable, easy-to-use device that allows for safe disposal of used insulin syringes by disintegrating the needle. Its small size and affordable price makes the DISINTEGRATOR practical for both the home and office.
Because the DISINTEGRATOR destroys the needle immediately after use, it eliminates the need to transport and store hazardous sharps in separate containers.
The revolutionary DISINTEGRATOR utilizes a unique plasma arc to melt the needle at a temperature of over 2500° Fahrenheit, reducing it to a small “bb” shaped ball. The built-in rechargeable battery will disintegrate over 40 needles between charges.
