Client: ConceptoMed AS
Cofounder: K8 industridesign
In his previous medical profession, founder of ConceptoMed, M.D. Christian Mide often felt the need for product innovation when performing arthrocentesis procedures. This procedure involves inserting a needle into the patient’s knee, and then detaching the syringe, however Christian felt the need for a solution to ease disconnection, improve aseptic safety and reduce patient pain. Christian thus contacted K8 with the potential product idea.
Luer-Jack® is a completely new approach to the challenges of needlestick safety and aseptic delivery of services. It fills the void in the market for needlestick prevention – purely through one-hand disconnection of needle hubs. No need for recapping of needles for safe needle-disposal procedure.
The OneHand use makes procedures safer, timesaving, and enhances sterility and workflow with less need for a second hand or assistance from colleagues.
In addition to the Luer-Jack®, K8 industridesign is designing the innovative Steri-Tilt™ – the Luer-Jack® Safety Packaging.
