TickleFLEX is an accessory for the end of your insulin pen that makes self-injecting a safer, more comfortable, more consistent and worry free process.
Watch our 2 minute video below to better understand how TickleFLEX works and how it can improve your quality of life.
Diabetes challenges our day to day lives.
If you are a Type 1 or Type 2 diabetic you may be insulin dependent and be required to inject with an insulin pen on a daily basis. You will also identify with the many issues that an insulin injection poses.
When you administer your insulin injection you might hit a nerve, you might press a bit hard and inject insulin into muscle, you may not be able to hold the insulin pen steady if reaching around your body or you might even have needle phobia….
TickleFLEX does not cure diabetes, but for a very modest cost it does provide a solution for all of the above, and make injecting insulin easier to live with.
How does TickleFLEX work?
Using TickleFLEX is smooth and seamless – it distracts, it gathers, it secures.
Simply slide it over the needle and use the insulin pen in the normal way, but now with the added benefits of TickleFLEX.
01 - TickleFLEX Distracts.
The highly textured fingers tickle the skin, saturating the local nerves to mask any pain. Its like scratching an itch or rubbing an ache.
02 - TickleFLEX Gathers.
As the needle enters, the fingers gently gather a small fold of subcutaneous tissue helping to direct the insulin to where it is intended.
03 - TIckleFLEX Secures.
As TickleFLEX gathers, it secures the skin, preventing needle shear as a result of an unsteady hand.
TickleFLEX attaches to the end of your insulin pen and allows you to use it in the normal way.
TickleFLEX hides the needle as it breaks the skin, reducing stress for those with needle phobia.
TickleFLEX has a large pad area that acts like a snow shoe and prevents the needle going in too deep.
TickleFLEX holds the needle stable enabling you to reach further around your body and inject with one hand.
TickleFLEX will fit onto any Universal single use 4 – 6mm needle and therefore can be used for more than just insulin.
TickleFLEX’s silicon has an anti-microbial additive and can be washed or even boiled.
TickleFLEX comes in a case that is opaque to UV rays and protects the silicon even if left in direct sunlight.
