lack of safety and the inconvenience associated with used needle/syringe
disposal have always created problems. Systems or containers that
accept whole syringes actually encourage needle sticks and are dangerous!
Accidental needle-sticks are a major problem that affect "innocents"
- innocents include family members, friends, the community, waste
collectors, landfill operators and above all......the general public.
the used needle only solves part of the problem. Both the needle and
the syringe barrel must be destroyed! The syringe barrel must not
remain useable - there should be no possibility of re-use!
answers these problems providing a safe, portable, convenient and
money-saving disposal unit for all sizes of insulin type diabetic
syringes. Use at home or while traveling.

the Voyager product works.
insert the used needle/syringe into the top of the container until
it stops. Twist the outside of the maroon colored top in the direction
of the arrows. The used needle and a small portion of the syringe
barrel are safely separated and contained within the VOYAGER. The
remainder of the syringe barrel is safely destroyed and no longer
useable preventing harmful accidental needle sticks.
