A Southampton couple is developing a simple medical device with a lofty aim: easing injection anxiety for diabetics and other patients.
Christopher and Sonia Hillios are awaiting patent approval for their Confidisc concept, an injection aid for syringes and injection pens, Mass High Tech reported.
Confidisc, a 1.25-in. diameter, polymer-based disk, is designed to reduces injection anxiety and pain perception, according to its creators.
And although it’s projected to cost only about a dollar, its potential market includes about 20 million diabetics in the United States alone.
