Protective Injector / 1.15Medicine/Healthcare

Protective Injector

Existing injectors have a problem which makes collectors get accidental injuries even bacterial infections. Our design can ensure the security of collectors after the injector being used. In terms of health, there is a inward concave design at the center of silica part of cylinder. When the needle pierce it, the pressure inside will expand outside in order to forbid the needle being polluted. The cylinder has a structure of flexibility. It can hide the used needle via flexing for protection.
Compared with the former injector, the flexible cylinder is safer. It reduces the disinfectant step and burns directly. It saves cost as well as time.
