MTD Group – a global leader in medical devices – is proud to announce that its affiliate Pikdare S.p.A. has just obtained FDA clearance for their revolutionary DropSafeTM SicuraTM passive safety needle. This breakthrough needle is designed to provide safe and efficient intramuscular and subcutaneous injection of vaccines and other drugs.
Despite the widespread implementation of safety regulations over the last decades, it is estimated that more than 2 million needlestick injuries (NSIs) still occur every year, putting healthcare professionals (HCPs) at risk of harm. To protect HCPs, safety needles are used as a means of preventing NSIs when administering drugs to patients.
The International Safety Center’s President and Executive Director, Amber Mitchell, DrPH, MPH, CPH, is leading the charge to reduce needlestick injuries by introducing safer medical device technology. Evolving sharps with injury prevention features to a more passive design is key to creating a truly passive design that not only protects the user, but those downstream who may come into contact with the contaminated device. By removing the need for user activation, these designs are more reliable and effective in preventing injury.
SicuraTM, the revolutionary new device from DropSafeTM, is revolutionizing the injection experience with its complete protection against needlestick injuries. With its transparent shield that automatically locks after injection, healthcare professionals no longer need to worry about the risks associated with injection, as the device requires no additional activation after the needle is used. Experience a fully safe injection with SicuraTM!
At the MTD Group, we recognize the paramount importance of safeguarding the safety of healthcare professionals – an imperative that has become even more critical in the face of the SARS-COV-2 pandemic.
As the world focuses on the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccinations, HTL Inc., a North American MTD Group company, is eager to meet the needs of its customers in the United States by introducing the fully passive injection device DropSafeTM SicuraTM. Pharmacy chains and other medical practices can now easily access this new tool, providing a much-needed increase in safety.
This device is awaiting its CE certification – stay tuned for its approval and find out what it can do!
