What are needle-free injections
and how do they work?
- Needle-free injections, also called needle-less or needless injections, are simply an injection without the need to use needles.
- A needle-free injection occurs when the injectable medicine eg (insulin, hormones, local anaesthesia and more) is pushed into the body through the skin by a combination of pressure and high velocity from a syringe:nozzle without a needle that has been specially designed for this purpose, “hence the liquid becomes the needle “.
- Needle free insulin injections are a safe and pain-free solution for people with diabetes and are simple for both adults and children to use. With the Comfort-in™, the insulin is pushed through a micro-orifice into the superficial skin cells to the tissue below.
