Loop / Disposable syringe set for hospital


For this design project, the topic of medical waste is focused on. Throughout the entire life cycle of the medical waste, medical workers could be injured and infected by different types of waste, especially by infectious and sharp waste, due to misconduct when treating the waste. This occurs either in the early waste collection and sorting stage, or in the late cleaning, disinfection and sterilization phase. Consequently, a set of disposable syringe is designed. This design generates less medical waste after usage and can regulate the proper disposal of the waste syringes to ensure the safety of medical users.
