IN THE MEDIA

“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.”

DAVID MENDOSA

HEALTH CENTRAL CONTRIBUTOR & DIABETES ADVOCATE

“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.”

JEREMY HODSON PETTUS M.D.

UC SAN DIEGO, ASST. PROFESSOR OF ENDOCRINOLOGY

“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.”

MEDGADGET

EDITOR, "BEST NEW MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES OF 2014"

“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.”

DIABETES HEALTH MAGAZINE

EDITOR, OCT 2014

“It’s time to stop the pain of finger stick with newly released Genteel… perfect for kids as well as adults.”

DIABETES SELF MANAGEMENT

NEWSLETTER, JULY 2014

“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.”

dLife MAGAZINE

JOE GUARNERI, STAFF WRITER

“I have used it now for one month 3x daily with remarkably painless, reproducible blood droplet formed every time.”

DR. GEORGE HOLAN

AUSTRALIAN ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGICAL SCIENCES & ENGINEERING

“He was so happy with the device he took it home… when I asked him for the device back he said “NO WAY”. I recommend this device to any of your patients who have ever complained about the pain of needle sticks.”

DAVID JOFFE

DIABETESPRODUCTSOURCE.COM & DIABETES EDUCATOR

“Genteel has developed a painless lancing device that allows users to perform a blood draw from alternate sites beyond their fingertips.”

Palm Readings Match Fingers!

Give Their Fingertips A Break!

Your child can now test on the thenar area of the palm. Genteel uses vibration and vacuum to draw blood consistently in areas previously too impractical or uncomfortable for kids and parents. By using the palm and other alternate sites, you can give your child’s fingers relief from the bruising, scarring and soreness of multiple tests a day.

Let Them Sleep

Testing your child’s blood sugar levels at night no longer needs to be a nightmare, as the sting and anxiety from more conventional lancing devices can disrupt their important sleep time. With Genteel, parents are assured their kids will have a restful night’s slumber, all the way through till morning!

This device is amazing! If there is anyway to make diabetes easier on a child it is worth the money.

– LINDSAY M.

My 8 year old loves her painless pokes. Excellent customer service.

– ALAINA K.

We got our Genteel a few days ago for our 4 year old. We were certainly very attracted to the idea that finger prick tests could be made almost painless and the option to give her fingers a rest and test other sites. The stickers are a fab touch and she enjoyed personalizing her Genteel.

We got our Genteel today and started with issues and called in stressed. Now we are using it like a pro and I think this product just made my entire year! Totally amazing and works and my daughter loves it. Get it!!! Thank you Dr. Jacobs for inventing this and an extra special thank you for spending over an hour with me on the phone today and personally teaching me everything about it. I am a beyond happy diabetes mom!

Sandra Wong

We ordered a Genteel for my 15 yo T1 for 7 years on our way to diabetes camp. We were skeptical, but with the return policy… $129 is nothing for her fingers to heal and not look like “Swiss cheese” anymore. We have been using Genteel for about a month now. She loves being able to test on her legs – it’s more discreet. I love being able to check her while she’s sleeping without pulling hands out from under her! She doesn’t wake up, and I was able to test her shoulder while she was sleeping on her tummy! We are very happy with this product, and need to get some pamphlets of information to our diabetes association about this!

Meghan Cole

We purchased a Genteel for our 2 year old after a rep from the hospital called my wife to tell her about this product. Like most of the comments I’ve read we also had some trial and error. My best advice is to watch the tutorials on Genteel’s website and read the instructions. We are using the most aggressive purple tip which seems to work the best on alternative body parts such as her forearm and calf but is too aggressive for the fingers and toes. Like I said, trial and error.  We are now using it exclusively and after both my wife, myself and our older kids trying it out I’m extremely happy to say it is PAIN FREE!

Jon Stoyak

Houghton Lake, Michigan

My 5 year old daughter loves hers! She is able to use it by herself to do her testing. I have tried it on myself a couple of times and couldn’t feel it. I have recommended this to anybody who has asked about it on the diabetes facebook pages. I can’t thank you enough for making testing painless!!!

Laura Dunlop

Brisbane, Australia

I purchased the pink Genteel lancing device for my 3 year old daughter. She said it doesn’t hurt at all and I think she thinks it is more fun than her regular lancing device. Being able to decorate it made it fun for her too with the stickers it came with. I’ve shared this with others in the diabetic community and the one negative comment I receive is the upfront cost. Yes the device does cost money, however, if it means my child doesn’t need to experience pain roughly 10 times a day when we are testing her sugars than that is completely and totally worth it!

Our Genteel arrived today in Spain and my 13 yr old is thrilled with it. He says it just feels like a finger stroke. Very happy with this product.

The Lancing Device That An Amazing Biomedical Doctor Finally Got Right

With its Butterfly Touch Technology, covered by 6 US patents, the Genteel lancing device is a brand new concept in lancing. We have completely reinvented the industry standard spring-loaded devices that can hurt. Genteel controls the depth of penetration and when combined with its vacuum will draw a reliable drop of blood without the discomfort.

STEP 1

STEP 3
STEP 4
STEP 5

Use one of the recommended lancets and place it within the receptacle. Replace Nozzle/Contact Tip assembly.

Determine which of the 6 included Contact Tips work with the location you want to test on. Typically, you’ll only need to perform this once for the test location. In each lancing kit, you receive two nozzles, which the Contact Tips will attach on to. One Nozzle is for fingers, another Nozzle for alternate sites. Once the correct Contact Tip is chosen, it will stay on the Nozzle unless you change locations.

Watch Video: Determining the Optimum Contact Tip

Push down on the push cap until it locks into place. Make sure your finger is not on the Activation Button. This means that Genteel has formed a vacuum, and is ready to draw blood from the location you selected.

Place Genteel on the test location, making sure to create a seal against your skin. Don’t push too hard. Press the Activation Button which will release the push cap and hold the vacuum. Hold down for 8-12 seconds or until enough test blood is brought to the surface.

Once you have your desired amount of test blood (8-12 seconds), release the Activation Button BEFORE you lift Genteel off your skin. If you remove it before releasing the Activation Button, the blood will splatter.

After releasing the Activation Button and removing Genteel from the test location. Use your existing meter and strip to read your blood sugar level.

You’ve now used Genteel and can draw test blood from your fingers, palm, or any other location on the body. Without the discomfort of testing, you’ll start to test more and more – which will help you gain control of levels.

Why Genteel Works

Genteel combines depth control, vibration, and vacuum to draw blood painlessly from fingertips and alternate sites. Penetration depth is controlled so precisely, using Genteel’s Contact Tips, that the lancet gently taps the top side of the blood supply but not pain nerves. Vibration and vacuum distract the skin, preventing discomfort through the lancing process.

“No more bruises!”

“I’ve had a lifelong fear of needles…”

No More Sore Fingertips

Start testing on the thenar area of the palm. You can choose from virtually any location on the body to draw blood. Genteel uses vibration and vacuum to draw blood consistently in areas that were previously too impractical or painful. By using the palm, you can give your fingers relief from the bruising, scarring and soreness of multiple tests a day.

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.

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…

– SANDY K.

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.

CAUTION

  • Genteel is designed for single user only. It is very important to note that using Genteel, any of its parts, or any lancing device on multiple individuals can increase the risk of inadvertent transmission of blood-borne pathogens.
  • It’s important to sample away from visible veins or capillaries, deep skin crevices, and thick, matted hair, as they may cause discomfort, unnecessary bleeding, inaccurate test results, or a blood-smeared sample.
  • Before testing, particularly if you’ll be drawing blood from your hands or fingertips, it’s important that you thoroughly wash your hands in warm, soapy water or a disinfectant. This is to reduce the possibility of either infection or inaccurate test results.
  • Regular soap and water, or an alcohol swab, is recommended.
  • Rinse and dry with a clean towel after washing.
  • For use with FDA-approved (or country equivalent) lancets only. (Click here to see accepted lancets).
  • Do not use cleaning solvents, like paint thinners, on this product, as they can degrade its plastic parts.
  • Do not subject Genteel to excessive heat, such as leaving it in a closed car on a hot sunny day.
  • Always check with your doctor to see if alternate site testing is right for you.
  • It’s highly recommended to use a new lancet after each test.
  • As you perspire, the evaporation of sweat can leave residue that may affect your results. If you have been perspiring, it is recommended that you clean the test site before lancing.

CARE

  • It is very important that you clean Genteel on a regular and frequent basis, as any dirt, grit or animal hair that gets inside its components can affect its operation.
  • Clean Genteel if any blood or contaminants gets inside the device.
  • Keep Genteel in the Belt & Pouch Holding Clip when not in use
  • Use Belt & Pouch Holding Clip to hold the device securely in the Travel & Organizer Pouch.
  • Ensure device is completely dry before use.
  • When not in use, store lancets in reverse inside the receptacle or remove them to avoid accidental lancing.
  • Cock the device before inserting the lancet for easier loading and removal.
