Whether you are a seasoned medical professional or a recent medical school graduate, Injeq IQ-Tip system is an advanced tool to make lumbar puncture successful.

With Injeq IQ-Tip® it is possible to get the puncture right the first time, every time.

Because Every Procedure Matters

  • 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.
