Back to Lancets and Lancing Devices ComforTouch Lancet

The ComforTouch lancet has a 26-gauge wire, making it smaller than some other lancets. It's also quite rigid, so it's easy to load into a lancing device. It's also very easy to cover the lancet after use: the cover has a flat bottom and very little pressure is required to insert the lancet into the cap. And unlike the BD Ultra Fine, you can easily tell a used lancet from an unused one.

Testers rated the ComforTouch on par with the BD Ultra Fine, making it one of the least painful lancets. Highly recommended for children with diabetes.

The reviews of products are the opinion of children with DIABETES. Each product is reviewed with a single purpose: to determine if the product is suitable for use by children with type 1 diabetes, their parents, and, to a lesser degree, adults with type 1 diabetes. There are many products aimed at adults with type 2 diabetes that are not appropriate or suitable for children or adults with type 1 diabetes.
