SAFIRA stands for Safer Injection Regional Anaesthesia, a medical device developed by Medovate, a company based in Cambridge in the United Kingdom, along with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn Foundation Trust.

The device contains a safety feature that helps prevent anaesthetic being injected at unsafe pressures, aiming to reduce the risk of significant or peripheral nerve damage.
