The gentleheel® heel incision device provides a safe and efficient means for acquiring blood samples from the heels of newborns. Sterile, single-use and not made with natural rubber latex. gentleheel® utilizes an automated lancing mechanism that delivers a smooth incision with less trauma to the heel. gentleheel® features a tri-bevel and hardened stainless steel blade that generates a less traumatic and more accurate incision as well as a welded casing to help prevent accidental exposure to the blade.
gentleheel® is a registered trademark of Global Resources International.
In addition to the current gentleheel® features, the following cosmetic improvements have been added:
- Multiple visual indicators reinforce the location of the incision site
- New ergonomics design for improved handling
- Four distinct colors for easier selection
