Syringe/Needle Destroyers, Mechanical
Definition : Devices designed for rendering hypodermic syringes and/or needles unusable using mechanical action. These devices are typically a small, tabletop unit with a base, a manually actuated mechanism with a hole to place the syringe end with the attached needle, and a container for the needle and/or needle and syringe connector debris. They are available in a variety of configurations, each with a different destruction mechanism, including devices with two handles that are squeezed together to actuate two circular blades across each other, devices with hand-powered clipper action to remove the needle, and devices with two blades that cut the syringe at the nozzle (hub), separating the needle from the syringe. Mechanical syringe/needle destroyers are typically reusable; however, hub cutters are intended to store the cut needles, and the whole unit is discarded when the container is full.
