    PharmaJet Introduces Needle-free Subcutaneous and Intramuscular Injectors

    Post by Meesh on Thu Nov 18, 2010 7:06 pm

    How many times have you seen a friend or a relative with diabetes inject themselves with insulin subcutaneously? Overtime they may say they get use to the pain but that’s only because they have no other choice but to bare it. What if there was a safer, needle-free way? PharmaJet offers just that.




    And it seems like PharmaJet has already been approved for use in the US for sometime. How it works is that the injector uses a new form of technology in which it delivers liquid medications at high speed, creating a “liquid jet” that penetrates the skin and delivers the medicine through the skin in less than 1/3 of a second. Doing exactly what patients today already do but without the needle. The great thing about PharmaJet is that it works as subcutaneous injector as well as intramuscular.

    The PharmaJet injector utilizes a single-use, sterile, auto-disable needle-free syringe and a spring-powered energy source that creates an optimal pressure profile. This combination results in a superior injection experience and feeling compared to prior injectors and in fact to needle-bearing syringes themselves.

    It's still piercing the skin, but probably has a different feeling than actually being poked by a needle. Most people just might be in fear of seeing the needle itself; so because this injector doesn't have one, it might help them take their meds a bit better knowing that they're not actually seeing a needle. The Pharmajet claims to deliver the meds in 1/3 of a second, with a diff feeling than prior injectors. So quicker and less painless.

    I would think that water pressurized to the point where it penetrates the skin still might hurt xD On a lighter note those things would make great water guns >Smile

    that's interesting. I dont like needles. Just the sight of them anyway. Pain doesn't bug me so much. I think I'd opt for this instead. Good idea.
