Project name: Futuristic Safe Injection System-2020
Project location: India
‘Futuristic Safe Injection System-2020’ provides a cheapest, safer, greener, more efficient and ergonomic drug delivery method and device compatible to WHO’s guidelines. It consists of reusable injector and safely disposable drug-cartridge containing inbuilt piston and retractable needle along with a fixed dose of medicament, wherein needle retracts automatically within the empty cartridge after the injection process. Neither of the two parts per se are syringe but constitute an efficient, simple and user-friendly auto-retractable safety syringe, when both the parts are coupled together. The disposable drug cartridge, thus, constitutes a smart packaging material to pharmaceutical industry. The injector is provided with a LED indicator, which not only regulates and keeps vigil on the entire injection process but also illuminates the injection site in dark hours to conveniently facilitate the injection procedure. The injector may also be attached with Fluid Collector to safely collect fluid samples without any risk of NSI.
The European Patent Office, while examining our International Patent Application (PCT/IB2016/051060) WO/2016/142799, has opined, “The technical effect of these features is that the injector is reusable while the only parts to be discarded are the needle hub and the medicament cartridge. As a result a cheaper and friendlier to the environment system is achieved without an increased risk of needle injuries.”
Goal and purpose of the project:
It aims at democratizing healthcare system by making it equally affordable and accessible to all; acheive WHO’s initiatives to completely replace conventional syringes with safety syringes by 2020; reduce Global Disease & Healthcare Burden; meet Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by multi-fold benefits to healthcare system; fight grave challenges of healthcare sector’s contribution to Climate-Change to achieve the highest goal of securing a safe, healthy and dignified ‘Right to Life’ for all.
Motivation of the applicant / applicant team:
We, a family of five members, consisting of Jai Hind Rathore, Bharati Rathore, Pratibha Rathore, Dr. Neelam Rathore and Dr. B. C. Rathore, have dedicated more than a decade putting all our available resources to prevent menace of NSI and biomedical waste. We have voluntarily offered a free of cost license to WHO, UNICEF and RED-CROSS to use our invention globally for the well-being of public at large, so that the ultimate benefits of invention may directly reach to the end-users in urgent need.
Use of prize money:
The prize money shall be utilized to meet the expenses likely to incur on essential R&D as well as protecting the IPRs in maximum possible countries to save our disruptive innovation from the clutches of unscrupulous profit-mongers and to protect the interests of humankind.
