Convenient Injections for You, Safe Disposal for Others.
Patients that self-administer injectable drugs outside of the healthcare setting, as well as their physicians, increasingly seek access to devices which are easy to use, convenient to dispose and offer protection to others.
In recognition of this desire, many insurance providers and diabetes services now cover insulin safety syringes at the same tier level as standard insulin syringes obtained with a prescription.
Some key benefits for patients seeking to self-administer prescription medication with Unitract® 1mL syringes include:
Intuitive Intuitive Use, Comfortable Handling
Unitract® 1mL syringes share similar steps of use to equivalent standard non-safety syringes. Wide-finger flanges (wings) give operators optimal control over the syringe during the injection process. The passive safety features 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, allowing operators to maintain focus on their primary healthcare needs.
Minimizing personal pain
Needles from reused syringes can become damaged or bent, with bruising, bleeding or skin irritations such as lipohypertrophy more likely to occur. Unitract® 1mL syringes are truly single use, ensuring every needle is sharp, straight and sterile. The ability to control the speed of passive needle retraction mechanism directly from the body into the barrel also avoids the potential pain incurred from a needlestick injury after use or during disposal.
Protection of Others
The protection of loved ones and the public from needlestick injuries is an important responsibility. The passive retraction of the needle of Unitract® 1mL syringes directly from the body into the barrel where it is locked in place can help ensure those at risk of needlestick injury are protected from harm.
The passive retraction of the needle of Unitract® 1mL syringes directly from the body into the barrel makes responsible disposal a timely and convenient thing to practice.
