Evaluation

With traditional screw needles, it is difficult for elderly users in particular to insert the screw thread, and since installation and removal of a needle requires numerous rotations it is difficult for such users to turn them with their fingers or to generate enough force. NovoTwist solves these problems since all it takes to install is insertion and twisting. It has been evaluated highly for its overall functional design.
