The Sharps Attack A Major Concern for Health Care Workers
As every health care worker knows, the risk of needlestick injuries is a major cause for concern. The Sharpx® needle destruction unit has been designed to quickly and easily destroy contaminated needles at the point of use, thereby reducing the risk of needlesticks without changing accepted procedures or organizational culture.
Sharpx® Is the Common-Sense Solution for Today
There are a number of devices that claim to reduce the risk of needlesticks currently available on the market. Some common examples of these are retractable needle syringes, heavy weight needle grinders and needleless air syringes. Each has its place under certain conditions and in certain situations. What sets Sharpx® apart from these other devices is its permanent method of destroying commonly used needles, its smooth operation and dependability. The advanced technology of the Sharpx® reduces the risk of needlesticks without changing the way you provide care...today. Its the common-sense approach that can easily and effectively be integrated into your employee safety routines.
The Sharpx® Patented Design Makes the Difference
The patented Sharpx® design performs like no other needlestick solution. Sharpx® uses electric current from its onboard battery to destroy the syringe needle. Waste collection is addressed in two parts: needle debris is captured in a removable receptacle while vaporized gases are directed through a filtration system. Some advantages of Sharpx® are its smooth operation, portability and ease of use. Ergonomically designed and weighing only 2 lbs., the easily portable Sharpx® NDU is designed to be used at the point of the procedure, patient-side. This reduces the risk of injury in the hot zone the distance from the patient procedure to the sharps container. Sharpx® and its compact charger cradle fit conveniently on any flat surface near a 110v wall outlet. This convenience, along with its inherent low cost of operation, make it a practical and effective solution for patient care sites in your facility.
