The idea

When the founder of ConceptoMed, M.D. Christian Mide, performed arthrocentesis procedures, with repeated disconnections of the syringe from a tightly fixed needle placed inside a knee, he felt the need for a “crowbar” to ease the disconnection, improve aseptic safety and reduce patient pain.

This medical need quickly emerged into a potential product idea and became the base for the LuerJack technology.
