Market Insights
Increase in Incidence of Injuries

Removing the blades with tweezers or your fingers is not safe. They increase the likelihood of getting a cut and bloodborne injuries like HIV, Hep B, and C. Worse, if excessive force is used when removing the blade with tweezers, the blade can slip and eject beyond its normal range, stabbing a nearby colleague. This leads to injuries. The risks are increased if any person's blood has contaminated the tool. This can result in percutaneous exposure to bloodborne pathogens. In the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA), approximately 9 million people are chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV), with an additional unknown number of undiagnosed cases. This risk also affects patients. Percutaneous injuries to surgical personnel pose a mutual risk to patients, with the possibility of physician-to-patient transmission of infection. Removal devices are designed to protect the user and downstream personnel from accidental injury when removing a scalpel blade from a reusable handle.
