Owen Mumford introduces a new safety pen needle designed for safer, more successful injections.
Marietta, GA –June 15, 2020:
Healthcare professionals, caregivers and those who are self-injecting using safety pen needles want to know with certainty that the injection was successful, and the full dose was delivered. Owen Mumford has responded to this need with the next generation of safety pen needle: Unifine® SafeControl®.
Unifine® SafeControl® is designed to provide protection from accidental needlestick injuries and provides confidence in delivering the full medication dose, balancing both safety and control during the injection process. The product features an innovative push tab providing one-handed control of the safety mechanism after injection when the healthcare professional is ready to activate. Unifine® SafeControl® also offers both visual and audible confirmation as well as dual protection.
Healthcare professionals who use passive safety pen needles have reported that design flaws often make it difficult to deliver a consistent standard of care to their patients. Hidden needles and premature activation are common concerns. Additionally, a study in the Journal of Hospital Infection revealed that injection pen use correlates with a higher rate of NSIs among healthcare professionals who give injections. Unifine® SafeControl addresses those concerns not only with an improved safety pen needle, but with innovation in technology.
“Healthcare Professionals and patients across the country trust Unifine® pen needles, and we are thrilled to introduce an innovative safety pen needle unlike anything currently available today. Dual-protection on both ends of the needle and easy safety activation, using Unifine® SafeControl® will offer yet another way for healthcare professionals to feel safe and confident with injections,” said Jim Lanza, Vice President of Sales at Owen Mumford Inc.
The addition of Unifine® SafeControl® rounds out an already comprehensive portfolio of capillary blood sampling and drug delivery devices. Whether looking to expand offerings, replace or upgrade current products or searching for a cost-saving alternative, Owen Mumford has a solution.
“We’ve had conversations with hundreds of healthcare professionals using first generation safety pen needles, to understand common injection processes and product improvement opportunities, this feedback we incorporated into our latest innovation. Overwhelmingly, they reported that Unifine® SafeControl® was safe, easy to use, and provided user control1. All users felt confident the correct dose was delivered to the patient1. We’re proud to be able to help improve healthcare professional’s ability to better treat their patients,” said Executive Vice President of Owen Mumford Inc, Travis Shaw.
Unifine® SafeControl® is now available in two sizes, 5mm 30G and 8mm 30G, and samples are available through Owen Mumford. For further information or to request product samples, please visit unifinesafecontrol.com.
