TickleFLEX Insulin Injection Aid is an accessory for the end of your insulin pen that makes self-injecting a safer, more comfortable, more consistent and worry free process.
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….
Of course TickleFLEX Insulin Injection Aid does not cure diabetes, but for a very modest cost and with relative ease it does make injecting insulin easier to live with.
Watch our 2 minute video below to better understand how TickleFLEX Insulin Injection Aid works and how it can improve your quality of life
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 Insulin Injection Aid.
The highly textured fingers tickle the skin, saturating the local nerves to mask any pain. It's like scratching an itch or rubbing an ache.
As the needle enters, the fingers gently gather a small fold of subcutaneous tissue helping to direct the insulin injection to where it is intended.
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 can substantially reduce bruising.
TickleFLEX enables users to confidently inject in more sites, thus potentially reducing issues associated with lipohypertrophy.
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.
Instructions for Use
Our simple guide to using TickleFLEX safely and effectively...

DON'T WORRY! The circular pad will prevent you going in too deep.
Your TickleFLEX Testimonials
Don't take our word for it, read what our customers are saying about TickleFLEX Insulin Injection Aid.
"I recently bought Tickleflex for my father who has been an insulin dependent diabetic for the past 10 years. He experienced so many difficulties with injecting. The results are incredible. Literally no more pain when injecting, no more bruises, no more accidentally hitting a nerve with the needle. This would also be amazing for children who require insulin injections. Couldn’t be more pleased."
Jenny Mepham - UK
"My 8 year old son loves the TickleFLEX. It has encouraged him to change where he does his injecting as the pain is drastically reduced. A great product."
Frances Meer, Parchmore Medical Practice PPG - Thornton Heath, UK
"A Practical aide that after using the first time takes the “Fear and anxiety” out of needing to cause potential pain to oneself with a needle. As the Tickleflex gathers the skin itself I had more confidence injecting. The injection sites have been 90% “Bruise Free”. A lightweight hassle free portable item. Would and have recommended to fellow PWDs through being part of the PPG at my surgery. Would like to have heard of the product through my DSN or Diabetes workshop at my surgery."
