The driving force for the creation of We Care™ project was our concern for safety and the comfort of people with diabetes and healthcare professionals.
The global number of people with diabetes is still growing. In 1980, there were 153 million diabetic patients around the world. Today, there are 371 million. It is predicted that in 2030 there will be 550 million diabetic patients around the globe and diabetes will be the 7th main cause of deaths. Each year, about 4 million people die due to diabetes complications (heart diseases; kidney diseases; diabetic foot; blindness).
Each year, while caring for patients, thousands of healthcare professionals are at risk of contact with blood-borne pathogens, potentially leading to HIV or hepatitis B or C virus infection.
Injuries with sharp devices are still a serious threat to health and safety.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that each year, there are about 385 thousand injuries connected with sharp devices among healthcare professionals (nurses, laboratory workers, physicians, domestic assistants, medical students and other healthcare workers). Unfortunately, about half or more injuries with sharp devices are not reported.
In our company, we take advantage of over 20 years of market experience and know-how gathered over the years of cooperation with our clients. Our products are designed to care about the safety and comfort of their users.
We Care™ is our contribution into simplification of disease prevention, diagnostics and treatment.
Prevention — safety lancets prevent infections with hepatitis B and C viruses and the HIV virus among healthcare professionals.
Diagnostics — safety lancets are available in many sizes adapted to individual needs of patients and allow obtaining the appropriate blood sample for testing.
Treatment — personal lancets allow easy monitoring of blood sugar in a domestic setting. Insulin needles and insulin pen needles are intended for subcutaneous administration of medications.
We want to care for the health of our products users in all aspects. We want to increase the awareness of risks that can arise from improper diabetes monitoring and injuries with sharp objects among healthcare professionals.
