ShotBlocker®

ASep Healthcare introduces ShotBlocker®, an innovative device that instantly alleviates the pain and anxiety of needle injections. ShotBlocker® works through a novel application of the gate control theory of pain management. It is a plastic, C-shaped device with small bumps on its back. When pressed firmly against the skin at the injection site, ShotBlocker® saturates the sensory nerves and distracts the patient from pain signals caused by the needle stab. The device is both simple and easy to use, bringing comfort to users of all ages.
