"Traumatic lumbar punctures are especially problematic, since they may introduce leukemia cells from blood to the central nervous system."
Because Every Procedure Matters
- Knowing that the needle tip is in the right place, you can avoid repeated, inconvenient punctures. Not only for patients with leukemia but also for newborn babies to whom lumbar punctures are particularly challenging.
- Avoid unnecessary needle movements in spinal area.
- Only 6% incidence of post-dural puncture headache – among the lowest incidences reported with the same-size needle of any type.
- Enabling technology for further applications.
Injeq was founded when a group of experts in the fields of technology and medicine identified a solution for a well-known medical need – to make lumbar punctures safer and more precise. The vision of a smart needle was further developed to a fully-formed idea, and from there to clinical research at neonatal intensive care units and pediatric oncology departments.
