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.
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.
TickleFLEX consists of a multi-functional hypoallergenic silicon moulding with ionic silver anti-microbial additive. It is fitted to an ABS frame that includes spring members to ensure it fits all universal needles even where small size differences exist. It comes in a polycarbonate case that protects the product and serves as a useful travel case.
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.

"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."

"Hi, the TickleFLEX device is a little miracle. My daughter, Amy, who is 6 and a Type 1 diabetic could not stand the sight of the needle and would hide under the table each time she needed her insulin. The first time I offered her TickleFLEX to cover the needle she was much happier and from that moment injecting insulin has become a game. What a relief! Thank you for thinking about the children, thank you for TickleFLEX."

"Bought this for my son who has recently been diagnosed with type 1. He has a fear of needles so injecting insulin 4+ times a day was traumatic. Brought this, used once and suddenly he took over all injections. The mixture of not being able to see the needle and the distraction of how the TickleFLEX feels, just works."
