“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How does TickleFLEX work?

As you press TickleFLEX against your skin 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. As the needle enters, the fingers gently gather a small fold of subcutaneous tissue helping to direct the insulin to where it is intended. As TickleFLEX gathers, it secures itself against the skin, preventing needle shear as a result of an unsteady hand.


Is TickleFLEX suitable for every member of my family?

Yes, TickleFLEX is equally effective on babies, toddlers, children and adults.


Sometimes insulin leaks on to my skin, what am I doing wrong?

You are not pressing TickleFLEX firmly enough against your skin, therefore the needle is not going in deep enough and the insulin is leaking out. It is important to make sure you press and hold TickleFLEX fully and flat against your skin. DON’T WORRY, the circular pad prevents you from going into deep.


How can I get to see the needle when I inject?

Simply cut a finger off with a pair of scissors from your TickleFLEX to create a side viewing window. TickleFLEX will still works as intended, and you get the benefit of visibly seeing the needle.


Does TickleFLEX fit all needles?

TickleFLEX attaches to universal fit needles for standard insulin pens. It does not fit the Toujeo Solostar pens or work with safety needles.


How can I keep my TickleFLEX clean?

TickleFLEX is very durable. It can be placed in boiling water without causing it any damage. It can also be washed with a mild soap and warm water solution.


Do I need to store TickleFLEX in its case?

The TickleFLEX travel case is constructed from UV Opaque Polycarbonate to protect your TickleFLEX from UV light that can discolour the silicon; Dust / Insects; Getting accidentally crushed and distorted.


Does it need to be stored in a cool place?

No. Silicon holds its shape even when hot, that’s why it’s also used for kitchen utensils.


How long will TickleFLEX last?

We advise you to change your TickleFLEX every 12 months or when you notice wear and tear on the textured fingers or the shape becomes distorted.


Does TickleFLEX need to be used at 90 degrees to the skin?

It helps, but it will be OK at modest angles. You can compensate by pressing a little harder.
