The team at diabetesshop.com are always on the lookout for new products. Every now and then we find a game changer that can significantly reduce the complications of living with diabetes. TickleFLEX is one of those rare products that can offer a huge improvement each and every day; a product that works so well that it makes you wonder why nobody thought of it before now.
TickleFLEX is an attachment that fits on injection pens that use a 4 – 6mm needle. (Does not fit the Toujeo SoloStar pens). 12 silicone arms hang down from the body of the TickleFLEX and cover the needle tip. Each arm has 22 raised bumps that touch and gently grip your skin during use. As you push down on your pen the TickleFLEX gently compresses and draws up a small amount of skin for the needle to insert. The quick simple action works so well that you probably won’t feel the needle prick, but you will notice the difference.
If you use an injection pen to administer insulin then TickleFLEX will make a substantial difference in your daily routine. It’s simple to use and offers a number of major benefits:
• No more needle pain thanks to the innovative masking design.
• Accurate injection at the correct level; no more hitting muscle or a nerve.
• Bruising is eliminated by the gentle grip action of the arms.
• Easy to use action that gives users a steady hand.
• You can be confident about using other suitable body areas.
• Hard wearing washable silicon construction has an antimicrobial additive.
Using TickleFLEX as part of your daily routine makes pen injections a worry free process that greatly reduces the complication of insulin injections. As you gently push down on your pen the action of the TickleFLEX softly lifts your skin up. Amazingly this masking technique limits your nerve endings from transmitting pain messages to your brain. The same action reduces skin tension which stops bruising produced by puncturing the skin. The TickleFLEX arms compress to the perfect height for insulin to be injected into the subcutaneous fat layer beneath the skin. Injecting becomes a quick stress free process without any anxiety about needles or the pain of hitting a nerve.
TickleFLEX is a superb product for anybody who uses an injection pen, particularly children who may have a phobia about needles. They won’t see or feel a thing. TickleFLEX can remove fear of a painful process for younger kids, while the ease of use makes it easy for older children to confidently inject themselves. For those of us who have less steady hands than we did as kids then the light, simple action of using TickleFLEX makes it a lot easier to get an injection at the correct height with minimal pressure.
