QLICKSMART BLADE NEEDLE SYSTEM
Qlicksmart BladeNeedleSYSTEM provides a simply safer way to remove and contain used scalpel blades and suture needles in sterile operating environments. BladeNeedleSYSTEM replaces the two-handed built-in blade remover of the existing needle counters with the world-first single-handed scalpel blade remover, which works perfectly safe.
Sharps injuries are a serious occupational hazard in healthcare settings. In operating rooms, scalpe
l blade injuries are the second most common type of sharps injuries, second only to suture needles. Use of a needle counter for safe containment of needles can minimize the riskof needle injury in the sterile field. However, built-in blade removers in existing needle counters are not safe, as they require two-handed activation and frequently malfunction. The sterile BladeNeedleSYSTEM enables single-handed removal and containment of used scalpel blades for safe disposal immediately after use, reducing the risk of scalpel injuries.
