RETRAGO is an innovative reinvention of the syringe, implementing safety mechanisms promoting infection prevention and control. After a single injection, the RETRAGO syringe automatically retracts the exposed needle and prevents the re-use of the syringe. RETRAGO is the first affordable automatically retractable syringe that features Auto Disable (AD), Re-Use Prevention (RUP), and Sharp Injury Protection (SIP) safety mechanisms in one device. The combination of these safety features not only protects patients, but also healthcare workers, waste management workers and the community from the risk of accidental needlestick injuries (NSI) and syringe re-use, potentially saving millions of lives!
