Passive protection for You, Enhanced Care for Your Patient.
International healthcare markets increasingly mandate, or strongly encourage, the use of safety syringes within healthcare facilities to protect healthcare workers from the risk of infection via blood-borne pathogen transmission modes such as needlestick injuries.
Unilife believes the combination of passive and fully integrated safety features can help to enhance compliance with needlestick prevention laws, and for most injection-related procedures, provide optimal protection for healthcare workers.
Some key benefits for healthcare workers seeking to use the Unitract® range of 1mL syringes within their facility include:
Virtual elimination of syringe-related infection risk
Passive, operator controlled retraction directly from the body virtually eliminates the infection risks associated with potential transmission modes such as needlestick injuries and aerosol (splatter).
Encourages Focus on Patient Care
Healthcare workers can direct their full attention to the care of their patient rather than protection of themselves and their colleagues from harm. An audible tactile click signals the engagement of the passive needle retraction feature, with healthcare workers always remaining in full control over the speed at which they withdraw the needle from the body of the patient into the barrel.
Easy Handling and Convenient Disposal
All safety features for Unitract® 1mL Syringes are fully integrated in the syringe barrel and activated automatically to reduce the risk of non-activation and help facilitate easy handling and convenient disposal.
The safety feature can be activated using a one-handed technique, with hands remaining behind the needle at all times. An audible, tactile click signals activation of the needle retraction mechanism, giving healthcare.
Protection from Reuse or Needle Re-Exposure
Permanent encapsulation of the needle within the barrel and its tilting to one side helps to prevent the risk of needle re-exposure, re-assembly or product tampering.
