NeedleAid is an injection aid product designed to help stabilize an insulin syringe or pen to make it easier to inject. NeedleAid keeps the syringe or pen steady and at a 90-degree angle. Anyone who has difficulty seeing or unsteady hands would find the Needle Aid to be a great help. NeedleAid also hides the needle, which can help anyone who is afraid of needles.
NeedleAid is a spring-loaded cylinder within a cylinder. The inner cylinder holds the syringe or pen steady, while the outer cylinder, which is flared at the opposite end, is held against the skin. You press down on the syringe or pen to inject, which is held steady and straight by the NeedleAid.
To accommodate different sizes of syringes and pens, NeedleAid comes with five adapters that fit inside the inner cylinder. NeedleAid is the only stabilizing device for insulin pens.
