Benton Dickson have added the latest advance in pain reduction to their 5mm pen needle. The Ultra-Fine 5mm features a 5 bevel design for increased comfort. The PentaPoint design produces a flatter, thinner needle tip that requires less force to ease into the skin, and has been clinically demonstrated to produce less pain. The Ultra-Fine 5mm also includes Easy Flow technology; the thinner walls of the needle allow insulin to pass through with a lot less force. In tests 47% less thumb force was needed using an injection pen.
So what does this all mean for you? The short answer is a sharper needle with better flow through and needs less force to inject your insulin resulting in quicker less painful injections. That’s got to be a positive.
Current guidelines are that short needles of 4mm or 5mm are the best choice for insulin injection since these deliver insulin into the subcutaneous layer at the correct depth and avoid painful muscle sticks. So if you’re using an older style 8mm or 12mm needle then now’s the time to see about changing to a 4mm or 5mm needle.
