J&J’s LifeScan has released a new lancing device that the firm says is less painful and easier to use than similar products currently on the market. The OneTouch Delica System features a thinner lancet that is applied swiftly in a straight line that supposedly helps prevent vibrations that can cause unnecessary pain.
From the press release:
In a clinical study of nearly 200 people with diabetes, 4 out of 5 reported the OneTouch Delica Lancing System was virtually painless and the most comfortable lancing device they have ever used. 96% said it was easy to use and 84% reported that it was quiet, and provided a discreet lancing solution.
To provide improved comfort, the OneTouch Delica System features a new, proprietary 33 gauge lancet that is 40% thinner than current industry standard 28 gauge lancets. In addition, the system’s Advanced Glide™ Control System precisely guides the lancet in a swift, straight motion that reduces vibration for a smoother lancing experience. It also features seven adjustable depth settings to allow for shallower fingertip punctures that may be less painful.
The OneTouch Delica Lancing System is now available at pharmacies and retailers nationwide and is designed to work exclusively with the new, small gauge OneTouch Delica Lancets. The OneTouch Delica Lancing System has an estimated retail price of $19.99 and includes 10 lancets. 100-count OneTouch Delica Lancets have an estimated retail price of $15.99.
