InventHelp® Introduces a Device for Safe Needle Disposal Invented by a Physician (FED-1210)

Share Article

A Washington state InventHelp® client has created a medical device invention, the NERD, which is being submitted to companies for review.

"As a medical doctor, anesthesiologist, I saw a need for a device that enhances the safety of medical professionals by eliminating the need to touch needles in order to dispose of or cap them," said an inventor from University Place, Wash.

He developed the NERD to permit the no-touch technique for temporarily holding sharp medical contaminated or non-contaminated needles or the cap (cover) of such a needle. The device allows a needle to be re-capped or disposed of as such. This prevents the accidental puncture of fingers of the medical provider by such needles. The design allows direct disposal of vials and ampoules into a sharps container. Additionally, it is designed to enhance personal safety and offer added peace of mind, and it features a disposable, one-time-use design.

The original design was submitted to the Seattle office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
