Safe’n’Sound®: Protection against needlestick injuries
Safe’n’Sound® by Nemera provides protection against needlestick injuries and its ergonomic design helps patients to inject themselves. Together with Harro Höfliger, the company’s integrated turnkey solutions enable its pharmaceutical customers to assemble the safety device in a precise and scalable manner.
Every year, needlestick injuries result in thousands of infections with diseases such as HIV and hepatitis C. This primarily affects healthcare workers. In addition, the number of injections administered by patients themselves is increasing – inexperienced users are exposed to an increased risk of injury.
With this in mind, Nemera designed and developed its premium add-on passive safety device Safe’n’Sound® on the basis of human factor studies.
“Right from the start, Safe’n’Sound® was developed with the user in mind and with a focus on meeting the patient’s needs,” explains Séverine Duband, Global Category Manager Parenteral. “Based on extensive studies, we have developed a robust and ergonomic design that provides both safety and convenient use for inexperienced users and healthcare professionals.”
Especially in the early stages of a project, Harro Höfliger’s Assembly Lab is ideally suited for assembling the prefilled syringes with the individual parts of the safety device. As Audrey Chandra, Category Manager in parenteral said, “Thanks to our collaboration with Harro Höfliger, we offer our customers process reliability and the possibility to safely scale the production of their drug-delivery combination product.”
