NeedleSmart is market-leading, patented needle destruction technology engineered in the UK. NeedleSmart devices take a hypodermic needle at the point of use, heats it to over 1,300°C, and compresses it into a ball. It takes just a fraction of a second to convert a sharp needle into a sterile sphere of metal. The process can contribute to the reduction of needlestick injuries and their consequential costs as well as having the potential to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of used needle disposal.
