“Genteel’s new device is as close to painless as I could ever hope for… you just can’t put a price on your pain.”

“It’s a great option for patients that have an extreme fear or aversion to finger sticks… there is certainly a niche to be filled here and will certainly recommend it to patients that I feel could benefit.”

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, DEPARTMENT OF ENDOCRINOLOGY
“Many will relish in pain-free testing, especially when testing six to ten times a day… it’s just so nice to be able to not feel that twinge when you push the button.”
“The Genteel lancing device promises nearly pain-free pricks anywhere on the body. It creates a vacuum around the sampling site, vibrates the spot, and pierces the skin within .018 of a second.”
BEST NEW MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES OF 2014
GIVE YOUR FINGERTIPS A BREAK
Achieve reliable blood draw from almost anywhere on the body. Allow your sensitive fingertips a chance to heal. The most accurate readings are on the palm, which Genteel can consistently draw from. You can also draw blood from a variety of alternate sites, like your forearms, chest, and top of knee.
DEPTH CONTROL. VIBRATION. VACUUM.
Genteel's Butterfly Touch Technology, combines depth control, vibration, and vacuum to draw blood painlessly from fingertips and alternate sites. Penetration depth is controlled so precisely that the lancet gently taps the top side of the capillary blood supply but not pain nerves. Vibration and vacuum soothe to distract the skin, preventing any discomfort throughout the process.
Our daughter is very happy with her Genteel and stickers.

“The inner workings of Genteel are remarkable: right below the capillaries are pain nerves, and Genteel’s shallow lance penetrates to the pain nerve, not through it.”

We bought this for my six year old son who has type 1 diabetes. It is amazing, you feel nothing. My 8 and 6 year old are able to use it by themselves.

This is the best lancet device I have ever tried completely painless. My fingers and I really appreciate this awesome device!

We purchased this in November and she was so scared to try it. We finally got her to and she hasn’t gone back to any other device. We are looking at purchasing a second one so she can use it at school…

Right from the beginning, I got enough test blood, painlessly, from several alternate sites. It was easy to use and really was painless.

It’s worth every penny! I appreciate the diabetic-friendly packaging too. Thank you!

We love the Genteel, it takes the pain out of testing. Now it isn’t painful to check blood sugars 5-7 times a day.
– NORINE M.
My Genteel is now my best defense against ruined fingertips, bruising and multiple tries to get that little blood spot for testing. It is well worth the money…

“Parents can effectively test their children at night, and I guarantee they won’t wake up because they won’t feel a thing! I know it works! I have two myself, one for home and one to use at the gym.”

“Genteel has developed a painless lancing device that allows users to perform a blood draw from alternate sites beyond their fingertips.”
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR BLOOD GLUCOSE
Eliminating the pain and fear of sampling leads to more consistent testing and better blood glucose control. Even those used to the pain of fingertip testing experience “subliminal avoidance mechanism” leading to irregular testing and poor control. Genteel will put an end to conscious and unconscious avoidance by completely removing the pain of testing.
Normally I have a very difficult time drawing enough blood. I had given up on alternate sites. Genteel changed all that. Now I can get blood from my forearm, knee, pretty much anywhere, with amazingly no pain at all.
