Needle Less Injection

The name injection is still a cause of fear and terror for many people, not only kids but also adults. The sight of syringe or needle passes a wave of chill through our spine.

Other than fear there are many reasons why needles must be replaced with this new technology are:

  • According to OSHA, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there are between 600,000 to 800,000 needle stick injuries every year in the U.S. alone. These injuries expose the healthcare workers to up to 20 different blood borne pathogens including HIV and hepatitis B.

  • Each needle stick injury causes approximately $3,000 for lab fees, labour, post-exposure follow-ups, etc.

Benefits of Needle Less Injections

  • No needle stick injuries.
  • No needle reuse.
  • Reduced healthcare costs.
  • Safe.
  • Auto disabling, needle free syringe.

This technology is called Needle free Injection technology (NFIT). It is a quite broad concept which discusses the delivery of drugs in the skin through different forces like pressure by gas, shock waves.

The future of this technology is definitely promising. It nullifies the use of needle completely. Thus making needle phobia a piece of history.

The injector uses a narrow stream of fluid that goes through the skin, without a needle, in about 1/10th of a second. A needle free injection can be classified on the following basis:

1. On the basis of working

2. On the basis of load

3. On the basis of mechanism

4. On the basis of delivery

While some say that it doesn't put an end to pain completely, but it surely reduces the pain to a level of forbearance. Let's hope it soon becomes easily available all over the world and we are finally saved from the terror of needles.
