A precision optical system designed to accept the barrel of an insulin syringe and to accurately guide the needle into the center of the insulin vial stopper when preparing to draw-up insulin. One end of the guide is recessed to firmly hold an Eli Lilly 10 cc insulin vial. Magnifies 1.7X the entire length of syringe scale for easier reading. Simplified mixing of insulin, helps locate bubbles in syringe. Fits 3/10 cc, 1/2cc and 1 cc syringes.
Designed for people who are blind and visually impaired, the Count-a-doseTM accurately measures mixed doses of insulin. The unit holds two bottles that are measured into a standard Lo-Dose syringe by turning a wheel that "clicks" for each unit of insulin. After counting out the correct dosage of one type, the unit is positioned to fill from the second bottle, making mixing easy and accurate. The Prodigy® Count-A-Dose® is a simple way to fill insulin syringes safely with one or two bottles of insulin of any brand. The bottle holder is marked to identify bottles for easy mixing with one raised dot for the first bottle and two raised dots for the second bottle. With the click dial starting all the way down toward the raised minus (-) sign, you simply move the click dial the number of times, or clicks, per unit of insulin needed. Each click of the dial toward the plus sign (+) will draw one unit of insulin into the syringe. You can have confidence that your daily dosage of medication will be accurate and effortless, giving you more time to do what you enjoy. This device is not returnable.
