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.

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.

  • Will fit onto any Universal single use 4 – 6mm needle.
  • Hides the needle as it breaks the skin, reducing stress for those with needle phobia.
  • The silicon has an anti-microbial additive and can be washed or even boiled.
  • Holds the needle stable, enabling you to reach further around your body and inject with one hand.
  • Has a large pad area that acts like a snow shoe and prevents the needle going in too deep.

This was designed by engineer Peter, who has type 1 diabetes. One day after a particularly nasty nerve strike, he thought he would see if he could devise a tool to improve the process of self-injecting. Check out his story here
