TickleFLEX: Worry-free Injecting

TickleFLEX is a universal fit insulin injection aid that supports best practice for injecting with short needles. It helps to reduce stress and anxiety when injecting insulin, empowering Diabetics of all ages to inject with confidence.

The benefits of TickleFLEX

TickleFLEX attaches to the end of your insulin pen and allows you to use it in the normal way, REDUCING NEEDLE PAIN

TickleFLEX 1 pack:  Worry-free Injecting
  • Stabilises the needle

    TickleFLEX holds the needle stable enabling you to reach further around your body and inject with one hand.

  • Fits any needle

    TickleFLEX will fit onto any Universal single use 4 – 8mm needle and therefore can be used for more than just insulin.

  • Hides the needle

    TickleFLEX hides the needle as it breaks the skin, reducing stress for those with needle phobia.

  • Reduces bruising

    TickleFLEX has a large pad area that acts like a snow shoe preventing the needle going in too deep. This can substantially reduce bruising.

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.

  • TickleFLEX Distracts

    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.

  • TickleFLEX Gathers

    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.

  • TickleFLEX Secures

    As TickleFLEX gathers, it secures the skin, preventing needle shear as a result of an unsteady hand.

Testimonials & Feedback

Hear what our happy customers have had to say...

I recently purchased a Tickleflex for myself as I have been a diabetic for 24 years and feel like a pin cushion. My stomach resembles a road map, I was bruising all the time and often injecting into a nerve causing a lot of pain and bleeding. The first time I used my Tickleflex I was truly amazed. I found that my hand was more steady, there was no pain or bleeding and no bruising afterwards. This little device has changed my life and I was so impressed that I have brought one for my sister. I love my Tickleflex.

"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."

“It did significantly reduce the feeling of the needle
and insulin going in and you could feel round the site
a slight tickle. I have given a few out to patients and
received some good comments, mainly reporting that
it did infact reduce the feeling of the needle and
reduced the pain.”

“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.”

Great item really pleased I came across it, only wish it had been available 21 years ago when I became Diabetic. Would have saved me anxiety & bad bruising, I highly recommend this product. Well done to the people who came up with this idea & went for it.

This changed my sons life. He has a fear of needles and the anxiety meant he was unable to do his own injections and panicked knowing I had to. This arrived and I used it once, since then he has done all his own injections.
