An exponential increase in the annual cost burden due to needlestick injuries, has fueled a corresponding rise in demand for safe and highly advanced safety devices to be developed by the stakeholders engaged in the healthcare industry to generate a stringent regulation for the prevention of needle-stick injuries.
Given the inherent benefits of needlestick safety injection devices, number of developers have launched their proprietary devices for minimizing the risk of needlestick injuries. Moreover, stringent regulatory requirements have further prompted the stakeholders to improve product design and integrate better safety measures in their products, including needle shielding.
