Khan takes a look at the InSafe Sharps Disposal System

By January 18, 2013October 27th, 2015Product Tests

Studies in the UK suggest that up to 56% of dental practices experience at least one needle stick injury per year, and that as many as 30% of these constitute a moderate or high risk of transmission of infection.

The InSafe Dental Syringe is a new and totally unique anaesthetic safety system. It’s a low cost, simple way to protect dental clinical staff. InSafe’s patented syringe and sharps container ensure that the contaminated needle is never exposed except when required for the injection. Dismantling the needle at the end of the procedure is one-handed and poses . No other system offers this level of protection.
