BUTTERFLY / Needle / Transfusion Needle.


Children are generally afraid of taking a transfusion mainly because the infusion needle exerts ocular discomfort.
As the art knives which's blade can retract into the hilt and stick out when it's being utilized, we made the traditional syringe needle some difference. In normal state the plastic structure covers needle so that it is unable to evoke children's instinctive dread, with the help of the color and amiable appearance. The way to syringe may change from
moving entire needle to the metal part itself. The disappearance of needle will alleviate little patients' psychological pressure obviously.
