Effective Protection against needle stick injuries – RauSafe®
Worldwide, there are an estimated 3.5 million needle stick injuries annually in doctors' offices, hospitals and in the home care field. Associated with this is a risk of infection with dangerous viral diseases such as HBV, HCV or HIV. The resulting health and financial consequences after an infection are risk factors that have to be taken seriously.
In May 2013, the new EU Directive 2010/32/EU for the prevention of needle stick injuries came into force in all Member States of the EU. It dictates that employers in the medical field should provide systems with an integrated safety mechanism.
For this reason RAUMEDIC has developed a new safety device for injection systems. RauSafe can be adapted to a variety of existing injection systems on the market and provides reliable protection whilst being simple and intuitive to use.
The RauSafe safety device can be activated after an injection by simply pushing it forward. As soon as the needle is completely enclosed, you can hear and feel the system click into the end position.
