How About Painless Finger-pricking

How About Painless Finger-pricking
Anyone who has undergone glucose testing by fingerstick method knows how painful it is! A diabetic patient has to go through these daily rituals through his or her life span. Scientists all over the world are trying to find methods by which this pain can be reduced. Over a period of 20 years a person might have to pin-prick themselves 60,000 times.

Until now, no company has addressed the pain problem. Current mechanical devices often lance skin deeper than necessary, aggravating nerve endings, leaving a pool of blood that can become infected.

Now, the world's first and only digital lancing device, launched in Australia by Diabetes Australia-NSW, detects the exact depth needed to extract the minimum amount of blood needed, without hitting nerves.

Made by DiaCare International Pty Ltd, the device, called the The Pelikan Sun, uses advanced technology to increase the comfort and precision of blood glucose testing. It can accurately measure the sensitive skin depth of a baby - or the calloused finger of an adult.
