Customer Testimonials

Hana-Lia Krawchuk - Sydney, Australia

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.

Caroline Jaques - UK: TV producer

Wow! This device is life changing! No more pain while injecting. What I like the most is that I have had zero bruising whilst using it which it great coming up to bikini season. I also like that this widens the area in which you can inject. For best results I find, be confident when using it. Place it on the skin and press down confidently and you won’t feel a thing. Just feels like plastic laying on skin.  I showed it to my diabetic doctor who was impressed with it and approved me to keep on using it. Great product. Grateful for its invention.

Lukáš Bouda - CZ FB group: Klub maminek diabetickych deti

Anyone who has a child with type 1 diabetes knows that anything which will make his/her life easier is welcome. There are many kids struggling with injections and this adaptor looked amazing. So, 70 parents decided to give it a try... Everything arrived and is working perfectly! Sending greetings from Czech Republic and huge thank you!

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.

Téja Keech - UK

I am six years years old and have been scared to use my Novopen recently but TickleFLEX stops the pain.

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

Bought this for my 13 year old son and he's very shake when doing his injections but this has helped stabilise him. Says he can still feel some pain but only with levemir and he's on high dose 50units in one go so think that's the reason he still feels a little nippy. But on the whole would recommend.

Theresa Manning - UK

Bought this for my son who has recently been diagnosed with type 1. He has a fear of needles to insulin 4+ times a day was traumatic. Brought this, used once and suddenly he took over all injections. It's doesn't take the pain away but it does take the anxiety. The mixture of not being able to see the needle and the distraction of how the TickleFLEX feels, just works. Every single penny was worth it just to see the anxiety melt and to give him his freedom back as he can now be out with his mates without worrying that he needs someone to do his injections. Thank you!!

Mr Fyred- Diabetes Type 1 - UK

Comfortable and comforting.

Paul Hughes - Diabetes Type 1 - UK

Great little product. Highly recommend.

Lynne Reedman - Service Lead Duet Diabetes - UK

The kids are going to love this product.

Dennis Chapman- Diabetes Type 2 - UK

I found it easy to inject one handed.

TickleFLEX Customer Evaluation Testimonials - March 2018

I am filling the questionnaire on behalf of my son Walid Bouanani who has type 1 diabetes, he developed needle phobia shortly after he started injecting insulin, we were introduced to TickleFLEX by diabetes team. Since the first use I could see how comfortable, happy my son was, he told me that he still feels slight pain but the fact that he does not see the needle any more made a big difference, it lowered his anxiety and made him feel more in control.

Brilliant invention - thank you for thinking outside the box.

 

---

 

Had considerable difficulty in injecting into upper thigh due minimal flesh with much bruising and blood. Since using TickleFLEX its been much easier and with only occasional bleeding or bruising. Very pleased with present results.

 

---

 

This has helped my daughter so much, great product, she now uses a lot more sites to inject her insulin.

 

---

 

Has made injecting a lot easier especially being 11 years old and newly diagnosed!

 

---

 

I have answered these questions on behalf of my nine year old son Oliver who has type 1 diabetes and injects 5+ times a day. He wouldn’t be without it now and we have no bruising or lumpy sites at all. It’s great for children. It would be great if it was available in more colours or designs, making it cool for kids. Although, we still love it.

 

---

 

This changed my sons life. He has a fear of needles and the anxiety meant he was unable to do his own injections and panicked knowing I had to. This arrived and I used it once, since then he has done all his own injections. Given his freedom to play out with his mates back and taken the anxiety away. I rave about this product to everyone, including our diabetes team - who knew nothing about it but has since purchased a couple to show families. Thank you!!

 

---

 

Great job TickleFLEX. My son is not scared anymore to take his injection.

 

---

 

I used to have to chase my son around to give him his shot. He would scream and cry. Now with TickleFLEX he holds his arm out and doesn't flinch.

 

---

 

My son Oliver always hated his night time Lantus injection. It always stung and he would hate having it. The TickleFLEX has enabled him not to worry about it anymore. It’s fun, distracting and doesn’t hurt. ANYTHING that enables a child with T1D to make life easier is a god send. As a parent it’s heart wrenching to watch your child anxious and in pain. TickleFLEX is an amazing solution to a daily problem and it’s inexpensive design is truly wonderful. I hope that all people can get this readily available. It’s not a gadget, it’s a device that enhances people lives.

TickleFLEX has been incredible for my daughter, helping her with MDIs beyond anything else we have tried. A great idea, well executed.

 

---

 

Brilliant - my hands shake which makes twice-daily injecting a nightmare, but TickleFLEX holds the needle in place so pain is minimal or non-existent. Cannot sing its praises enough.

 

---

 

Carman is only 7 years old and has answered this with my help (her mum). She has only been diagnosed for 3 months. Doing her insulin injections has been hard from day one, she hates them for many reasons and it becomes stressful for everyone each time. We got the TickleFLEX about 5 weeks after diagnosis and it has made the injections easier and less worrying for us all.

 

---

 

A great invention that has worked wonders for our daughter who is type 1 Diabetic.

 

---

 

My 11 year old daughter uses the TickleFLEX. Before we got it, she would not administer her own injections, but now she does them all with ease. This is a fantastic product and should be available free on the NHS for children at least, but ideally everyone.

 

---

 

 

Great little product. Highly recommend.

 

---

 

Great item really pleased I came across it, only wish it had been available 21 years ago when I became Diabetic. Would have saved me anxiety & bad bruising, I highly recommend this product. Well done to the people who came up with this idea & went for it.

---

 

Brilliant product! Hope it gets on NHS prescription. Before my daughter couldn’t inject herself now she can as it has taken away the fear of seeing the needle. Thank you!

 

---

 

I have been a diabetic for over 20 years. By using sharp needles little pain is experienced but the TickleFLEX really helps in needle position and comfort. Gives confidence when injecting.

 

---

 

My 8 year old son manages his injections much better with TickleFLEX, I have to do his bedtime one in his buttock and he really felt the better difference when we use it. He likes to see where the injection is going before he gives himself it and the TickleFLEX does make this a bit difficult but the pain and bruising is much reduced when using it.

 

---

 

Thank you for TickleFLEX, it's made a HUGE difference to my son's quality of life.

 

---

 

For a child I think this a brilliant invention. Especially for Lantus injection which is more painful. He doesn’t complain now.

 

---

 

This is for my son who is 9 and struggled with injections. The TickleFLEX has made injecting much easier for him and it doesn’t hurt as much and also I think psychologically he can’t see the needle as easily as it’s hidden by the TickleFLEX. I have recommended it to other parents who struggle with their children and injections.

 

---

 

Much kinder than just injecting, would highly recommend.

 

---

 

My son who is 8 years old was reluctant to inject but the TickleFLEX changed this and removed the anxiety and pain. Thanks.

 

---

 

Finally I can inject into sites where it was impossible to reach with both hands at the same time, so my sites which are damaged can relax for some time and regenerate.

 

---

 

I bought TickleFLEX for my daughter who has Type 1 diabetes for 11 years now, and whenever I put the insulin on her leg it hurt. Now with TickleFLEX there is no pain. We are glad we have it.

 

---

 

9 year old son - good for arms and thighs - but not good for belly area... but we like it and using it everyday for arms and legs - not for belly though :)

 

---

 

I bought this for my 4 year old daughter who is scared of the needles used for her (4 daily) insulin injections. The tickleflex has definitely eased her anxiety before injections - even after only a week of use - and I hope that over a longer period it may help her to accept them more easily.

 

---

 

My 8 year old son is using the TickleFLEX, before he wouldn’t do his own jabs, he was scared of the needle, the pain and the whole process, he now does all his own jabs thanks to using the TickleFLEX! Great bit of kit, worth every penny would definitely recommend!

 

---

 

This product was for my 9 year old daughter. She doesn’t ever inject now without it. Amazing product, thank you.

 

---

 

Great product - only issue is easily comes apart when fiddled with by my 8 year old son who is the one using TickleFlex so regularly have to reassemble.

We would like to firstly say thank you for making our son Teddy's ordeal with being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and the prospect of more stress less of a negative experience for our family. Teddy was diagnosed on Thursday and his first experience with injecting wasn't good, he was kicking, screaming and hesitating before we could give him his insulin and that in itself as a parent of a newly diagnosed Type 1 child was a mega challenge. On the second day he asked to try out your life saving TIckleFLEX invention which was introduced to us by the Bexley diabetes team. From the first injection, using TickleFLEX was a more pleasant experience for Teddy and also for us as his parents. We can now speak very highly of it and it's getting a lot of attention by the staff here at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich as they are all coming to have a look at it and how it works. Ted is also autistic but he has such a caring nature and he would love to show other kids in his situation how easy it is to use. He really is a lovely character, and any way that we can help, we will. Something like this should be available on the NHS for children with diabetes. We also feel that as Ted is newly diagnosed, TickleFLEX might also take his mind off his diagnosis. We are keen to share Ted’s TickleFLEX experience with Diabetes UK and the Autism Trust UK in order that together, we can help as many others as possible. Thank you again.

From my son Stewart's point of view the device is simply AMAZING.  Injections were painful, they upset him, and he was anxious prior, and during injection.  He got upset, and myself and my wife also got upset that we were causing him pain & distress. However that changed on day 1 of getting the Tickleflex, It was a game changer for him (and also us).  He doesnt complain, he rarely feels any pain, it makes the injections easy for him to receive, and also from us as parents, stopped our worrying of how he would put up with this for the rest of his life. We have convinced our local DSN team at Musgrove Park Hospital of how wonderful it is, and they themselves have seen what a huge difference it has made to Stewart. They had never heard of it. I feel this should be offered to any and all and fully support your campaign to get the NHS to offer it to all. From Stewart and us, just 'thank you' for creating this device.

I bought the device for my son, age 7, to help him get used to injecting himself. He went from doing no injections himself to doing them all within 24 hours of using the device. Amazing.

 

---

 

Good device especially for younger children with anxiety

 

---

 

As an amputee, I was unable to pinch my skin at the injection site and suffered because of it.  The Tickleflex achieves the pinching so I have much less pain and bruising but still have a degree of anxiety about injecting myself.  Hopefully this will disappear as I become more confident with using the Tickleflex device.

 

---

 

 

I have only used the product for a couple of days as just received it. I feel no pain when injecting which is great. As for bruising will have to wait and see but can see no new bruises.

 

---

 

Sometimes it feels like a massage when TickleFlex is touching the skin :-)

 

---

 

Excellent product, has transformed my daughter’s (age 9) care. She is now able to give all her injections only 4 months after her diagnosis. I have recommended this to friends and will continue to do so.

 

---

 

Very happy with the TickleFlex

 

---

 

Tickleflex has had a positive psychological impact in terms of dealing with anxiety. My son uses the product and he never injected on his own prior to tickleflex. With tickleflex he injects on his own most of the time.
