On this project Nottingham Trent University collaborated with Olberon Medical Innovation to develop a self-retracting medical needle. It is estimated that there are approximately 25 million intravenous injections, or cannulations, in the UK each year, with up to a third expected to fail on the first attempt. This innovative design addresses this issue by significantly reducing the number of failed intravenous injections.
