Prism Medical & Design won the CE Mark to offer its ProteXsure Safety Capsule System in Europe. The product is intended to prevent needle stick injuries by making it easy to place a protective cap on the end of a needle. Once a clinician is done using a syringe he/she simply pushes the needle into the hole within the ProteXsure device. Within, a mechanism snaps a cap onto the needle and it can then be removed, recapped with the original cover, and safely disposed of. The device advances new caps forward every time one is used and the final ten are colored yellow and red as a warning that the caps within will soon run out.
It works with all needle lengths and sizes, including bent ones, and is considered a “one hand recapping” system under OSHA guidelines.
Here’s a quick demo of the Prism
