The award, which was presented as part of Compamed, rewards the most innovative exhibits and exhibitors in five different categories. Compamed is the international trade fair for the medical engineering supply industry, taking place every year at the same time as Medica, the world's largest medical engineering trade fair in Düsseldorf.
RAUMEDIC received the award for the RauSafe product, an active needle safety system which provides effective protection against needle stick injuries.
RauSafe offers users and patients safe protection with easy, intuitive use. The safety system is activated after the injection by simply pushing it forwards. As soon as the needle is fully enclosed, the system latches permanently in the final position, which the user can hear and feel. The needle stick protection system can also be adapted to various existing syringes on the market and is built in such a compact way that it is frequently possible to retain the standard packaging. With RauSafe, this medical engineering company developed a needle stick protection device that differs significantly from the products available on the market. Other systems are either complicated and expensive or are simple but not sufficiently reliable. RauSafe combines the positive characteristics: it is easy to handle and offers safe protection against needle stick injuries.
Dr. Thomas Jakob, Director of the Molding/Pharma Solutions business unit, accepted the prize on behalf of the project team. His thanks went out to his colleagues: "This is a great award for RAUMEDIC. Without the team's excellent cooperation, it would not have been possible to realize this innovative system."
