Forca Healthcare F.Z.C. - Securinject receives prestigious British design and innovation award

AJMAN, 04 October 2019 – Forca Healthcare, a company that develops medical devices, today announced it has received this year’s prestigious British Horners Award for design and innovation presented by the British Polymer Federation and the Worshipful Company of Horners.

Accidental needle stick injuries (NSIs) and cross contamination are serious concerns in modern day dentistry. Scientific research shows that dental professionals have a 56 % chance of receiving an NSI injury each year. Cross-contamination is another challenge for any dental office as reusable dental syringes are a source of contamination, as they cannot be safely, consistently and reliably sterilized.

Securinject is a patent pending innovation to prevent NSIs and cross infections in dentistry. They are recognized for their easy to use locking mechanism to protect dental professionals from accidental needle stick injuries; ability to safely dismantle used needles for disposal; aesthetically appealing, cost effective and single use design to prevent cross contamination. They are made using the finest materials and most advanced technologies to meet the needs of contemporary dental practice.

“The field of entries was very strong this year and it was extremely heartening to see the level of innovation and creativity in design of the products entered. It is a tribute to the UK spirit of manufacturing, however this also made judging very challenging” said David Williams, Chairman of the Horners Awards Committee. “The judges were really impressed with the overall design, safe and cost-effective nature of Securinject.”

Organizations from across the UK submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the Horners Awards 2019. Nominations were then judged by a committee who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions.

 ‘“We are very excited to receive a Horners Award for design and innovation and proud of all the hard work the research and development team has done over the last year to make Securinject a near perfect product,” said Junaid Syed, Managing Director of Forca Healthcare said. “We see this award as a further validation of our leading position in the dental safety syringe industry and a positive representation of our customers’ overall enthusiasm for Forca Healthcare products. The award inspires and encourages us to continue innovating.

About Horners Awards
The prestigious award is believed to be the longest established Design Award for Polymers in the world.
In 1946 the Worshipful Company of Horners approached the British Plastics federation with proposals for a link between their ancient craft and the modern plastics industry and on their initiative an exhibition of plastics application was staged at Guildhall.

In the following year the Horners Company generously presented a sum of 50 gns to the Federation to be expanded at the discretion of the council on awards to craftsmen in the plastics industry. These awards were offered for design and emphasis was placed upon encouraging younger craftsmen.
In 1947 there were two classes, one for the designer a mould in which the first ever prize was won by W. Westwood of the Tool Makers, Fox & Offord Ltd. and a drawing for the arrangement of a moulding tool in which the first prize was won by F Seed of United Ebonite and Lorival.
A few years later the regulations for the award were modified to cover the design of a product made from plastics materials.  This relationship between the Federation and the Worshipful Company blossomed strongly over the ensuing years and still flourishes to this very day.
