Flower Syringe Needle / auxiliary medical product

Flower Syringe Needle

We design a flower syringe needle, which lets the injection process like palnting a little red flower
on the arm, to encourage children to get vaccinated with no fear. We use rubber bands and a Spring
to fix a little Safflower on the needle, and the bands can also be linked to the syringe. As the syringe
pushes, the rubber band becomes loose and the flower opens gradually. At last, the spring presses
the little red flower on the wound, which has a cotton ball as its stamen has double-sided tape at the
bottom, so that the child does not have to hold the cotton ball to cover the wound.
