Features & Accomplishments

  • Developed a unique design that minimized the number of components without sacrificing premium lancet device functions such as adjustable depth selection and other features intended to minimize pain.
  • Required at least two fewer components than all competing lancet devices, resulting in a substantially lower cost per unit.
  • Designed an attractive, easy to use product that stands out from most lancet devices, which are typically plain and lack quality ergonomics.
