14INSULIN PENS &

INJECTION AIDS

We look at the diabetes kit to help make the basics of insulin injecting simpler: addressing pain,

getting rid of needles - and how not to forget when you last injected.

For many people with diabetes, injecting is not without its issues. Some of us could have

dexterity issues, needlephobia (see page 12) - or both. Fortunately, there are several products

available to help. Here's a brief round-up!

AUTOJECT 2 NOVOPEN ECHO

BUZZY4SHOTS

Autoject 2 has been specially

designed for people who have

difficulty injecting with a syringe

- so anyone with small hands or

dexterity issues, such as children

and seniors, or others with

arthritis, for example. At the

touch of a button, Autoject 2

automatically inserts the needle and

contents of the syringe into the skin

without you having to see the

needle. It also has a safety lock to

prevent accidental firing and a dose

completion indicator. The Autoject 2

can be used with one hand, which

makes it possible to use for a range

of injection sites.

Buzzy bee is here to help take the

sting out of injecting. This injection

aid has been proved to lessen

needle fear when used over time, as

well as pain. Filled with gel, it uses

natural pain relief by confusing your

body's own nerves and distracting

attention away from the 'little stab',

reducing that sharp feeling of pain.

The NovoPen Echo insulin pen

comes with a memory function,

which records the last insulin dose

in units as well as the time since the

last dose. The segments on a dial

represents an hour since the last

injection and there's an end-of-dose

click for reassurance, so you know

it's been delivered. It also has

half-unit dosing, so very useful for

young children or those who are

very insulin sensitive with a need for

very low dose capabilities.

It comes in two colours and a choice

of fun skins if you want to

personalise your pen.

TICKLEFLEX

TickleFLEX is another simple,

award-winning device that fits on

the needle-end of an insulin pen. It

takes away the pain, worry and

stress out of injecting by distracting

pain signals by stimulating the

surrounding skin area. It also

conveniently hides the needle!
