Abstract: front page image
(EN)A new type of tether that may be used in conjunction with a needle and a needle shield is disclosed. The tether is designed such that if a needle is retracted from a human patient, the tether will help to secure the tip of the needle within the needle shield. The tether will generally comprise a body and one or more flaps that are added to the body. Each of the flaps will also include at least one aperture. The apertures and the flaps are designed such that the needle may be threaded through the apertures in the flaps.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un type d’attache innovant pouvant être utilisé avec une aiguille, ainsi qu’un dispositif de protection d’aiguille. L’attache est conçue de manière à faciliter le blocage de la pointe de l’aiguille dans le dispositif de protection d’aiguille lorsqu’on retire l’aiguille du patient. L’attache comprend généralement un corps et un ou plusieurs battants ajoutés au corps. Chacun des battants comprend en outre au moins une ouverture. Les ouvertures et les battants sont conçus de manière à ce qu’on puisse faire passer l'aiguille par les ouvertures dans lesdits battants.
