|20140039407||CONTACT TRIGGER RELEASE NEEDLE GUARD WITH ELASTIC SPRING - A needle guard device mountable to a pre-filled syringe in its ready-to-fill state. The device includes a lock collar and a device shield biased to move relative to the lock collar. The lock collar interfaces with the syringe neck to attach the device to the syringe. A flexible member interconnects the lock collar and device shield. With the removal of a needle shield assembly comprising rigid and soft needle shields, the device shield is free to move proximally along the syringe neck. As the device moves proximally, rotation arms of the lock collar interact with angled cutouts in the device shield, causing the device shield to rotate relative to the lock collar disengaging one or more keys on the device shield from one or more keyways in the lock collar triggering the device shield to move from a first configuration in which the device shield is retractable to expose a syringe sharp to a second configuration in which the device shield is fixedly positioned to cover the syringe sharp.||02-06-2014|
|20140039406||ANTI-NEEDLE STICK SAFETY DEVICE FOR INJECTION DEVICE - A safety device for a medicine cartridge comprising a body for receiving a cartridge, a guard for covering a used needle, a plunger to dispense medicine from the cartridge and a spring for activation of the guard. The trigger fingers of the guard are spaced to avoid or minimize contact with the spring flange during assembly to avoid trigger finger unseating. An elongated trigger finger head enables the device to activate for all known syringe and syringe plunger tolerances. The spring end coils have larger diameter than the inner coils to reduce the likelihood of the spring end coil end interfering with the cartridge subassembly. Syringe capture features are configured to retain a syringe having a small round or conventional cut flange in place during use and reduce the stress on the syringe flange during insertion while maintaining the ability to hold the syringe in place during use.||02-06-2014|
|20140025013||PATIENT-CONTACT ACTIVATED NEEDLE STICK SAFETY DEVICE - A device that is used in conjunction with a needle-based medication injection device (e.g. a prefilled syringe) that prevents needle stick injuries. The used needle is shielded by a needle guard that surrounds and extends beyond the needle tip. In a preferred embodiment, before the needle is inserted into the patient, the needle guard projects forward to substantially hide visibility of the needle for safety and to reduce patient anxiety.||01-23-2014|
|20130123711||CONTACT TRIGGER RELEASE NEEDLE GUARD - A needle guard device mountable to a pre-filled syringe in its ready-to-fill state. The device includes a lock collar and a device shield biased to move relative to the lock collar. The lock collar interfaces with the syringe neck to attach the device to the syringe. With the removal of a needle shield assembly comprising rigid and soft needle shields, the lock collar and device shield are free to move proximally along the syringe neck and interact with a syringe step down area to activate the device. As the device moves proximally, retention arms of the device shield interact with the syringe step down, causing the arms to deflect radially outwards to disengage from the lock collar triggering the device shield to move from a first position to a second position.||05-16-2013|
|20120310207||SYRINGE WITH NEEDLE GUARD INJECTION DEVICE - The present invention provides for an injection device including a syringe with a proximal end, a distal end, a needle extending from the distal end, and a plunger inserted into the proximal end. A guard is slidable on the syringe, has a proximal end, a distal end, and is biased from a first position wherein the needle is exposed towards a second position wherein the guard covers the needle. The injection device includes first and second sets of cooperating detents for retaining the guard and syringe in the first and second positions, respectively. A latch member extends proximally from the guard that is engageable by the plunger as the plunger is depressed to release the first set of cooperating detents. Upon release, a spring element biases the guard towards the second position until the second set of cooperating detents engage and secure the guard in the second position.||12-06-2012|
