Take It Easy / syringe

Take It Easy
Take It Easy

The length of an average syringe is more than 6cm. Sometimes it requires one hand to feel the pulse or to do other things, leaving only the other one left to take blood with syringe. When we use traditional syringe, however, the length we can draw with one hand is about 3.5cm. We usually need assistance of the other to draw to the end. The second movement makes syringe shake, hindering the needle targeting correctly. Re-puncture is therefore needed sometimes.The modified syringe has transparent extended stick that make us easy to see scales.We can use it to draw and inject with index finger and thumb in different clinical poses conveniently!
