Novotwist® has been developed by Novo Nordisk to fit uniquely to Novo Nordisk insulin delivery devices. The needle has a simple 'just twist' attachment and detachment that makes injection easier.
In two surveys of people with diabetes, 68–77% of people preferred NovoTwist® to the conventional thread needle NovoFine®, and more than half of those surveyed said they found attaching and detaching the needle ‘very easy’.
“The enhanced ease of attaching the needle that is provided with the unique ‘just twist’ mechanism of NovoTwist® may have accounted for this preference”.
Besides the ‘just-twist’ attachment and detachment, NovoTwist® has other features such as audible and tactile clicks to confirm correct attachment.
NovoTwist® was developed in response to requests for simpler injection solutions from patients and healthcare professionals.
The innovative design of NovoTwist® was developed by teams within Novo Nordisk and external designers; Scott Allen (Møller-Jensen Design) states “Innovative technical solutions were combined with user interface and product visual identity input to create a product that improves patient’s treatment experience”.
NovoTwist® comes in 5 mm (32G Tip) and 8 mm (30G) and is compatible with Novo Nordisk devices. Please see full list of compatible devices here
