BD Nano and Patient Comfort
Pain from injection devices is affected by needle length, diameter, needle polishing, lubrication, and needle tip geometry. Did you know 47% of people with diabetes would be more likely to administer their injections regularly if a product was available that would ease the pain and discomfort of injections.1 72% of patients who tried the new BD Nano preferred it over their current pen needle.2
Laboratory testing demonstrated a significant 23% reduction in average penetration force for the new 5-bevel vs current 3-bevel pen needles. When asked to test a new pen needle at home, patients rated the 5-bevel needle significantly more comfortable, easier to insert, preferable, and less painful.4
