Pinch Aid / Medical device

Pinch Aid

Diabetes patients are required to inject insulin through their buttocks, thighs, arms or abdomen daily. It is inconvenient to execute in public places. If they want to inject on their arm, they would have to complete the operation with a single hand.

Pinch-aid uses the characteristics of the materials to help users to hold up the skin for insulin injection as their third hand.
