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. What Makes Comfort Point Insulin Syringes Different?
A number of factors set these insulin syringes apart from lower quality products:
How are they used?
- Needles are fine and tips are ground to shape for maximum comfort when used
- Syringes are non-toxic, latex-free, and non-pyrogenic -- will not produce allergic reactions or induce fever
- All syringes are sterile and brand new; have never been used in needle exchange programs
- Plunger designed for smooth and accurate filling
- Markings are precise and easy to read
- Reduced "dead space" design results in significantly less wasted insulin
- Reliable product proven to reduce or eliminate pain, bumps or bruising at the injection site
- High-quality comparable to BD (Beckton, Dickinson) and Terumo 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 syringes! Other Considerations:
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.
