BABYLANCE SAFETY HEELSTICK
The babyLance™ safety heelstick from MediPurpose™ was developed with more than 10 years of proven product development expertise, leveraging the advanced thinking behind our SurgiLance™ safety lancet. The result is a precise, safe and consistent heel incision device specifically designed for babies.

Fits Your Hand Like a Glove
Designed with you in mind. Ergonomically, the dimples give you a secure grip. While functionally, the device cradles the baby's foot for stability and reduced rock, with visual markings that enable better alignment and a more accurate incision.
The Perfect Incision Every Time
The innovative spring design controls the consistency of the depth and width of the incision for better blood flow, without touching the baby's tender nerve fibers.
