What is NeedleCalm? And how does it help patients with needle phobia?

NeedleCalm is an award-winning Australian-made device that helps reduce the fear, stress, pain and anxiety associated with needles.

Using both temperature and texture, NeedleCalm utilises your body’s natural response to certain stimuli to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.

The result? A much better experience for people who don’t like needles—and for the healthcare clinicians administering them.

Of those that have a fear of injections, at least 20% avoid medical treatment as a result, with some surveys reporting that from 25% to 77% of people with an extreme fear of needles will avoid medical procedures, depending on the procedure (ranging from 10% avoidance for blood tests up to 64% avoidance of flu vaccinations and 77% avoidance for donating blood).

NeedleCalm™ provides long term benefits for both the patient and health care provider. Nurses spend significant amounts of time dealing with patient anxiety, distracting the patient and in most cases with children it takes 2-3 staff to assist, especially in the Emergency Setting. A simple injection can require 20-90 minutes of time from a single staff member, time which often nurses don’t have.

Oliver

My NeedleCalm story

“My name is Oliver, and I have a phobia of intramuscular injections. This has been a huge mental and physical battle over the years. If I avoid my injections out of fear, I run the risk of having my body not align with who I am. If I do the injection the additional mental impact is just as much.

Once I applied the device I felt all my nerves and anxiety calm down. One deep breath expecting…a too good to be true sort of pain strike as I injected, to be absolutely overjoyed to the fact that I felt…. Nothing! I could not recommend or promote this device enough!

I highly recommend trying this out. Thank you NeedleCalm™!."

My NeedleCalm story

"I’ve now used the needle calm with two other people with milder phobias who have commented on how positive their experience was, and how simple yet effective NeedleCalm is.

I make a point of explaining the physiology behind it so they can fully participate in the journey and feel more empowered with knowledge of how it works."

My NeedleCalm story

"I have used NeedleCalm twice now for blood tests.

While I do not suffer from needle phobia (Trypophobia), it worked well to block the feeling of the injection.

I reached out to NeedleCalm and created this quick animation to spread the word.

If you know someone who HATES needles, check out NeedleCalm."

My NeedleCalm story

"We are having some success with this product, especially in the young adults.

I have used NeedleCalm with 3 patients so far that I believe would have needed sedating otherwise."
