Depth Controllable Needle Guard v2.0


After completing my project for Medical Device Design I, I did a complete overhaul of the Depth Controlled Needle Guard so that it would be a single, cheap, injection molded part. This design allows a clinician to remove the needle's shield/cap, cut it at a given depth (each black line is a centimeter), and replace it from the side, rather than the top. Designing the shield in this way reduces the chance of a needle stick and clinical contamination.
