medication delivery, the needle automatically retracts into the barrel,
minimizing exposure time and harboring the needle post retraction for safe
transport and disposal. One-handed device operation keeps hands behind the
needle during procedures, and no recapping via accessory shields or sheaths is
required. The proprietary safety mechanism disables the device after its single
use. The syringes are OSHA compliant and latex-free.
