Injection pens have been shown to improve the quality of treatment for patients and may improve treatment observance.
They also reduce the risk of medication error and improve dose accuracy. However, without the use of a safety solution, injection pens are associated with needlestick injuries six times more often than syringes.
Studies have shown that both ends of a pen needle are contaminated after use so both ends would require safety features. A pen needle designed with automatic double protection may reduce the risk of exposure to the patient and clinician after removal from the pen.
The first safety pen needle designed to fit all insulin pens that provides automatic double protection
