Presyringe is an integrated design product that combines a syringe and vaccine. It is portable, reduces waste pollution and shortens the time for injection.

In Taiwan, the prevalence rate of hepatitis B has gone up to 10 to 15 percent. Adults or infants are vaccinated with the same dosage. As such, it makes sense to unify the syringe and the vaccine into one. With the combination of functions, the efficiency of vaccinating enhances. Doctors can easily bring the vaccines around wherever they go without taking up too much space in their carriers.
Presyringe is also consciously designed to minimise the amount of waste produced. This product is both user-friendly and eco-friendly. For safety, a tear line (stopper) sits at the top of the syringe to prevent accidental usage. A fold line (chip) at the bottom of the syringe is also created so that the needle can be broken off after the using. In this way, it decreases the possibility of getting infected.
