Mushroom Needlecover / Medical supplies

Mushroom Needlecover

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2019

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2019

Children always show their fear of needles, even struggle during blood test or Intravenous injection, and it always gives doctors hard times. Even for adults, the needle is also a horrible thing that so many people have a phobia to it.
So, we create Mushroom Cover, which has a mushroom-shape needle cover. It not only replaces the traditional protection tube but also gives needle a better impression. Additionally, the top of the mushroom form can be flipped then spread out in order to stick the needle stable. We use medical-silicone material, which can be easily flipped and also harmless for a long time contact with the skin.
