Less Required Thumb Force
The pen needle requires 62% lower force to press the button, earning the Arthritis Foundation Ease of Use Commendation.
Higher Flow Rate
A large inner diameter allows insulin to flow more easily, providing a 149% higher flow rate than other leading pen needles.
Improved Insulin Absorption
The pen needle is estimated to inject insulin into the fat layer more than 99.5% of the time—at all injection sites,4 promoting consistent absorption and reducing the risk of intramuscular (IM) injections that can cause hypoglycemia.
The five-bevel needle tip vs the three-bevel tip of other leading brands enables the pen needle to penetrate the skin more easily and facilitates a smoother, gentler injection by providing a flatter, thinner surface.
Varying Sizes Accommodating Various Needs
The BD Ultra-Fine™ brand also comes in 5-mm and 8-mm sizes.
