Quick-Start Your Way to More Comfortable Monitoring.
Place your DigiVibe device on a flat surface and push the suction activation button or simply hold the device in your hand.
Turn the DigiVibe on and center your finger under the DigiVibe Tip. Allow the device to vibrate your finger for about 12 seconds.
As the device is vibrating your finger, collect your blood by fingerstick and continue with your typical glucose testing process. Easy peasy!
“”Finally!” is all I can say. After years of searching for something, anything to make glucose testing more tolerable, a friend reached out to me on social media to suggest DigiVibe. Talked to my doctor and ordered with skepticism, but it has out-performed my expectations. Now I recommend it to every fellow diabetic I know.”
“As parents who pay very close attention to the health of our children, we’re so grateful to have a product that requires no additional medications to reduce pain. Keeping our household stocked with clean foods and free of toxins is already hard enough. DigiVibe is a fantastic tool for people like us.”
“I can’t thank the inventors of DigiVibe enough! Friends told me it would get easier, but six years after my type 2 diagnosis I still loathed the pain and soreness of monitoring my blood sugar. I used to dread pricking my finger each day, but now I think nothing of it. DigiVibe is a true lifehack for fingersticks.”
“Children shouldn’t have to face finger-prick pain every day on top of the diagnosis for a lifelong condition like diabetes. Thanks to DigiVibe my 8-year-old daughter now looks forward to “buzz time” as we’ve started calling it. No more tears or tantrums.”
The Science Behind DigiVibeOur proprietary technology blocks the pain signals of finger pricks.
Using vibration to block the pain signal is not a new concept and is backed by scientific evidence. Inadequate pain control during various medical procedures, including finger pricking, is incredibly common.
Vibration techniques have been successfully used in several clinical settings to reduce pain perception, including in areas such as dermatologic surgery, phlebotomy, dentistry, and injectable cosmetics. It has even been used in the pediatric population with great success.
These types of clinical procedures, including pricking the finger for blood glucose monitoring, can trigger feelings of anxiety in many people, especially children. This may be due to past finger pricking pain, leading to avoidance for fear of it happening again.
The good news is that applying a pain-free vibration device like DigiVibe can significantly reduce anxiety associated with finger prick pain in both adults and children alike.
A recent large randomized trial titled “Differential Analgesia From Vibratory Stimulation During Local Injection of Anesthetic” evaluated the impact of vibration technology on those undergoing dermatologic surgery. A numerical rating score (NRS) for pain was created to accurately measure pain perception in the study participants.
Those who received the vibration treatment had a statistically significant 40% reduction in site pain compared to the placebo group. Imagine if you had achieved such a significant reduction in pain each time you pricked your finger and how much easier it would be to better control your diabetes without dreading the process.
The researchers of this large study concluded that vibration technology is a clinically and statistically effective modality in reducing pain discomfort across the majority of study participants.
Utilizing vibration technology to make finger pricking more feasible is vital for reducing barriers to monitoring and achieving optimal glucose control. The fear of pain associated with finger pricking is one of the biggest hurdles to frequent monitoring, and this can lead to avoiding the process altogether.
Pricking your finger is an essential part of managing your diabetes — but it doesn’t have to be a painful experience or something you dread. Stop finger prick pain and let DigiVibe make the process easier for you and your loved ones.
