TickleFlex Injection Aid
TickleFLEX is an innovative insulin injection aid. It’s a simple device you can attach to your universal injection needle to make injecting a safer, more comfortable, more consistent and worry-free process.
TickleFLEX consists of a multi-functional hypoallergenic silicon molding with ionic silver anti-microbial additive. It is fitted to an ABS frame that includes spring members to ensure it fits all universal needles even where small size differences exist. It comes in a poly-carbonate case that protects the product and serves as a useful travel case.
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
* To maintain your TickleFLEX in optimum condition we recommend replacing it every 6 months.
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.
- It fits any 4 – 6 mm universal needle making an ideal aid for insulin injections
- It’s made from high quality silicon
- The silicon has an anti-microbial additive and can be repeatedly washed or even boiled for disinfection
