PostVaccine / Post Vaccine

PostVaccine
PostVaccine

The injection process is painful and fearful especially for children. The relatively large needle is the main source of the uncomfortable feelings.
PostVaccin is designed without a noticeable needle. It contains hundreds of the nano-needles. On the top of the nano-needle, placed the pinhead made of soluble vaccine or medicine, once it posts onto the skin, the needle injects into the skin. It also contains a sterilizing layer which can disinfect while posting. By removing it, the pinhead remains in the corium skin level, which can slowly release the vaccine or medicine. Without seeing the needle, children won't fear anymore.
