Prism Medical & Design, a Coral Springs, Florida firm, announced FDA clearance for its ProteXsure Safety Capsule System. It prevents needle stick injuries by offering an easy way to snap on a protective cap to the tip of a needle.
Once a syringe is finished with, the needle is simply pushed into a slot on the side of the ProteXsure. This can be done with one hand. A cap immediately grabs onto the needle, readying the syringe for safe disposal. Just don’t forget to place the original cover back onto the syringe for best protection.
The mechanism advances the next cap into the slot just after the previous cap has been removed. The last ten caps are colored yellow and red to warn the user that the caps are running out and a new ProteXsure needs to be readied.
The company says the ProteXsure will work with all needle lengths and sizes, even including bent ones as long as the tip fits into the slot.
