What does it do?
TickleFLEX is a revolutionary insulin injection aid that addresses the challenges many insulin dependent patients face everyday by:
- Allowing you to pinpoint the injection site by preventing needle from slipping therefore minimizing the risk of needle stick injuries.
- Reliving the pain of injection by gently squeezing the sub-dermal tissue using its unique silicone tentacles
- Hiding the needle, reducing stress and needle phobia
- Preventing the needle from going in too deep due to its large pad area therefore substantially reducing bruising
How does it work?
Soft spiky fingers stimulate and saturate the local nerves so you don’t feel the needle. It’s called distraction analgesia, like rubbing an ache or scratching an itch.
Fingers pile up subcutaneous tissue under the needle and then spread out to control the needle depth and hold the pen steady. Bruising is virtually eliminated.
You don’t see the needle; it doesn’t hurt and TickleFLEX looks and feels friendly. Self injecting becomes safer and more consistent, a no stress routine.
- TickleFLEX attaches to the end of the insulin pen therefore hiding the needle which in turn reduces stress and needle phobia in children.
