flexible Cover Needle / injection needle

flexible Cover Needle

Sometimes hospital staffs and cleaners get pricked by used needles in the hospital. This is very dangerous situations and become more critical if the virus stained with needles are nontreatable, such as AIDS or hepatitis A. The 'fold cap needle' offers a safe solution by using a rimpled cover. To prevent reusing and getting stabbed, we made a sliding cover at the end of the flexible Cover.
