If your lancing device has been causing you more pain than you care to admit, a change may be in order. In most instances, lancet related discomfort may be traced back to six, controllable elements. They are skin fixation, penetration depth, lancet vibrations, speed, lancet tip design and lancet surfacing. One product whose design takes all six of those elements into consideration is the OneTouch®Delica® Lancing Device.
The OneTouch® Delica® Lancing Device is sold through retailers like Diabetes Health Supplies and utilizes OneTouch® Delica® lancets. To date, the device comes with a choice of two different gauge options, 33 and 30. The 33 is the thinner of the two lancets. It features a superior, sharp end with a smooth surface and flawless gliding action. Thus, it penetrates the skin quickly and without friction. The device also enables the user to adjust the penetration depth as needed.
The other nice thing about the OneTouch® Delica® Lancing Device is that its housing design includes foam padding and AGCS. Together, they help to ensure that the lancet does not move around erratically (i.e. vibrate) during use. So as you can see, all six pain-producing elements that we mentioned earlier are addressed the OneTouch® Delica® Lancing Device’s design.
Using the OneTouch® Delica® Lancing Device is a rather safe and straightforward affair too. One end of the device sports a cap designed for fingertip sampling. The other end features a depth indicator and wheel that may be set anywhere from one to seven. The center of the device, from forward to back, sports a release button, cocking control and ejection control buttons.
When it’s time to use the device, the cap gets removed and the lancet gets snapped into place. The cap then gets replaced while the lancet depth is adjusted. Afterward, the device is cocked and the cap end gets pressed against the skin while the user hits the release button. Once the release button has been hit, the lancet is deployed and the sample may be taken. The spent lancet may then be ejected with the aid of a lancet protective cover and the built-in ejection button.
