NeedleBay Pod VAT RELIEF

Product Code: NB1PODNV

Introducing the new, revolutionary all-in-one NeedleBay pen needle system for people living with Type 1 diabetes - more than just for storage, NeedleBay offers safety, containment and at-a-glance proof of use.

NeedleBay offers a unique, effective way of helping you to manage your diabetes medication while at the same time ensuring safe storage of pen needles in a handy, portable, attractive container.

The pod has been specifically designed in close consultation with healthcare professionals and those with diabetes to provide an innovative solution to a number of significant issues faced by people living with diabetes every day. 

Organisation and control couldn't be easier with NeedleBay.  It offers the facility to store up to 4 insulin needles for the coming day, giving you peace of mind that you're organised and in control.

It can be fairly easy to accidentally take too many, or miss, insulin injections.  NeedleBay is designed to enable the user to see the actual number of injections which have been made.  The NeedleBay system cannot prevent over-dialling units, but by securing new needles for the coming day in the daily module, it is then easy to distinguish between used and unused needles simply by looking through the translucent lid and observing whether or not the foil cap is removed.

Made in the UK.
