Easy to use

Threading is built into the hub so the needle glides and becomes tight only when it bottoms out—making it clear when it is and is not secure.

Less intimidating

Our system covers and obscures the needle except when it’s being used, reducing fear and anxiety during the delivery experience.

Unique Features

  • Patented coating that never wears away, allowing up to 40 punctures without needle dulling
  • Decreases tissue micro-trauma, bruising and pain, with 47% reduction in puncture hole size and insertion force
  • Very low coefficient of friction, reducing tissue drag and patient discomfort
  • Flexible when bent, eliminating risk of needle fracture
  • Sharp, sturdy needle that threads smoothly on any standard aspirating syringe
  • Built-in clear, ultra-thin recapping sheath, that slides down vertically to expose needle and prevent needle stick injury
  • Obscures the needle from patient's view, reducing anxiety
  • Hub-to-tip needle length is longer than standard needle, for enhanced visibility. 27L is 15% longer, 30S is 20% longer

Educate yourself about needlestick safety

You have to know the risks of needlestick injuries before you can prevent them. The keys to prevention are ongoing training, and products engineered for safety with OSHA approved controls. Choosing the right device could reduce your injury incidence by up to 75%¹

Needlestick Injuries Are:

injuries to healthcare personnel according to the C.D.C.¹


more needle sticks since 2001 (1.9 -2.5 per 100 FTEs)³


pathogens link to incidents on the job including HIV, HBV and HCV.³


mean expense to manage a needle stick event⁵


estimated cost of preventable care for healthcare workers in 2015 ⁵⁻⁷†


reduction in event where safety engineered devices such as SimpleCAP were introduced⁸


reduction in event where safety engineered devices such as SimpleCAP were introduced with supplemental training and maintenance programs.⁸
