Comfort Point insulin syringes are disposable, one-piece syringes,
manufactured by Exelint International, Co., designed for use by
patients who regularly self-administer insulin injections.
Most people associate getting a shot with pain. What many people
don't know is that pain, along with lesser side effects like
bruising, can be influenced by syringe design. The size of the
needle, tip shape, materials used in manufacturing, and other
factors can increase or decrease pain and skin irritation. When the
syringe's use is predetermined -- in this case for a dose of
insulin -- the syringe can be designed to effectively administer
the dose while minimizing discomfort.
Comfort Point insulin syringes are designed with comfort and ease
of use in mind, ideal for patients with an aversion to needles,
sensitive skin, or prone to bruising at injection site. The
single-piece design is perfect for patients who have difficultly
assembling or maintaining reusable syringes, and the markings are
clear and easy to see.
This product is CE marked for sale in Europe and authorized for
sale in the USA, UK, and most other countries. A prescription is
not required for purchase.

syringes, at a competitive price
Comfort Point insulin Syringes are disposable one-piece syringes
with the needle permanently attached. The syringes are empty and
must be filled with insulin by the consumer.
The smooth plunger design gives the user precision control when
filling and using. Because these syringes are designed for
relatively small doses of insulin, the overall syringe volume is
small. This makes it easier to read the markings and get accurate
doses; a larger, multi-use syringe can be confusing and difficult
to use properly.
Insulin syringes come in a variety of sizes and needle lengths. The
ideal needle length is dependent on the user's body size and type,
and will generally be recommended by a physician. Using the correct
needle length will further ease discomfort during use.
Disposable syringes should only be used once -- needle tips are
very fine and will become blunt with repeated use, increasing
discomfort and bruising. Additionally, without proper
sterilization, used needles also increase the risk of introducing
bacteria to unused insulin as well as the injection site.
Used syringes should be disposed of properly, with the needle guard
replaced to prevent accidental punctures. Never share used
Disposable syringes are becoming an increasingly attractive option
for insulin users as quality and availability improves, while cost
goes down. Though all types have their pros and cons, few designs
are as simple and straightforward as the disposable syringe, for
patients who just want to get the job done quickly and move on.
Disposable insulin syringes are also ideal for travel or other
situations in which speed and convenience are considerations.
Comfort Point insulin syringes can be purchased from the
convenience and privacy of home, without a prescription, and can be
shipped globally -- a hassle-free, low cost solution for insulin
users who desire high-quality and maximum comfort.
