Presspiral / Solution of sryinge needle


Needlestick injuries have caused many tragedies all over the world. According to the statistics, almost every medical personnel have been hurt by syringe needles each year. To our surprise, there are 30% of this accident are happened after throwing the needles.

Therefore, we submit a safer recycling bin that prevent medical personnel from facing needlestick injury anymore. “Presspiral” is the name of our recycling bin, it means users only need to press the opening and the needle will become a spiral form. The spiral needle hide the sharp into the center and never hurt people. This solution makes the wasted needle safer than ever.
