TUGI Model 2 is designed to facilitate and enhance the administration of injectable drugs in the treatment and prevention of thrombosis. It is designed to help patients comply with their prescribed treatment. TUGI helps patients overcome fear of pain or self-injury by providing the right angle of injection and restricting unwanted and painful needle movement in the body. TUGI makes it easier to handle the syringe for people who have tremors in their hands, impaired fine motor skills of their fingers or other health restrictions.
