Needleless to Say


Introducing the Needle free injector

The fear of needles in some people is intense but the days of needle trauma are finally over - ‘Feeling is believing’! Today, MIT Canada’s patented needle-free Med-Jet injectors are the most advanced devices on the market; the technology combines speed, accurate dosage and volume adjustability, producing a highly efficient method of drug delivery at LOW pressure - ‘The devices utilise a patented delivery system that allows penetration and drug delivery via an ultra-fine stream of liquid, up to seven times smaller than the smallest needle currently available world-wide. The Jet stream is so thin it can be compared to a mosquito’s proboscis and is unlikely to produce much pain. A slight pinch or pressure may be felt as the fluid passes through the skin.’ Unlike needle injections which form a bolus of fluid displacing tissue and resulting in slow absorption of the fluid, the Med-Jet injectors spray a fine mist of fluid into the tissues covering a greater surface for absorption to take place.

What a Needle-Free Injection feels Like?

“Instead of the piercing pain of a needle, you may feel a slight pinch or pressure as the fluid passes through the skin. Jet is so thin it can be compared to a mosquito's proboscis For Intra-dermal subcutaneous and intramuscular injections MIT’s injection systems help alleviate needle phobia and needle-produced stress, which remains a major impediment towards patient compliance and successful treatment.

Dispersion Pattern Jet Injection: The injected medication disperses in a mist or spray effect as it enters the subcutaneous tissue

The minute fluid particles of medication are then in close contact with the absorbent tissue.  The rate of absorption increases as the surface area to which the medication is exposed increases. The small penetration point results in reduced trauma to the site.

Needle and syringe Injection: The injected medication is deposited in a bolus or pool of fluid, which displaces the surrounding tissue.  It is then absorbed from the periphery to the centre of the bolus by the surrounding absorbent tissue.  Due to the limited tissue contact, absorption is generally slower than with jet injection.
