Welcome to the world of NeedleCalm®!
Thanks for stopping by. Needlephobia is a common problem and our mission is to help combat this by providing a positive experience for needle procedures.
On our website you will find resources, patient stories, case studies and of course information about our multi award winning medical device 'NeedleCalm ®'.
NeedleCalm™ is a single use adhesive pad with biocompatible medical grade silicone designed to promote comfort and minimise the perception of pain associated with needle related procedures.
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.
