Health care experts have long warned of so-called “silent killer” diseases -- that is, those that create serious damage without showing symptoms.
For baby boomers, that includes hepatitis C.
The Unistick 3 has been developed to provide the most comfortable blood sampling experience for the patient, whilst giving the healthcare professional complete control and confidence during the procedure. The unique raised dots mask the sensation of pain by stimulating the nerve endings responsible for contact, pressure and texture, making the procedure a more comfortable experience for the patient. The needle retracts immediately after use.
