Small Injection Pad

Small Injection Pad


Product Description

Born of a customer request for a realistic yet economical small injection pad, Paddy is designed for practicing or demonstrating needle injections, including vaccines. This 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 1-3/4" nursing kit staple realistically simulates three types of injections, including intramuscular, subcutaneous, and intradermal. Made of lightweight foam and a skin-like polymer in both light and dark skin shades, Paddy looks, feels, and responds surprisingly close to the real thing. Whether you are learning needle injections for the first time or are a veteran looking to brush up on your skills, Paddy is a small injection pad that packs a big punch.

Product Uses

The Paddy small injection pad is a realistic and economical tool for practicing or demonstrating the following types of injections:

  • Intramuscular (IM) – into the muscle
  • Subcutaneous – into the fat layer between skin and muscle
  • Intradermal (ID) – into the dermis

What Our Customers Love

We collaborate with medical industry experts and use their input to create simulation models that benefit nurses, other medical professionals, pharmaceutical companies, and continuing education institutions. Here’s some of what these groups love about the Paddy small injection pad:

Realistic Experience

With so many unrealistic rubbery and stiff nylon injection pads on the market, we designed Paddy to more closely mimic the feel of real tissue. Our customers often comment on the realism of the specialized skin-like epilayer and the accuracy of the skin puncture resistance that we’ve achieved with our proprietary formulation. Additionally, both light and dark skin tones look more realistic than gold or white alternatives.

No Hassle Fluid Draining

We designed the Paddy small injection pad for use with fluid-filled syringes. Unlike other injection pads that require cumbersome disassembly and reassembly to drain the fluids, we kept the underside of the pad open instead of sealing it to allow for easy draining. Simply lift the pad from the tray, drain, and then drop it back onto its tray and reuse. No complicated instructions are required!

Easy to Transport and Store

At 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 1-3/4", the Paddy small injection pad is small enough to toss in your backpack, briefcase, or nursing kit and take with you. Besides its compact design, customers also appreciate the squared-off tops that make Paddy easy to stack and store, unlike other small injection pads with rounded tops that topple over when stacked.

Long-lasting Design

Perhaps one of the most loved benefits of the Paddy small injection pad is that it lasts a long time. It has a near-infinite shelf life with proper care, reducing your order frequency, and saving you money. To prolong its lifespan, we recommend routinely soaking Paddy in antimicrobial dish soap and letting it air dry. So long as this small injection pad stays dry, it will remain resistant to microbial growth and other damage.

Versatile Injection Practice

The Paddy small injection pad can help you practice or demonstrate three types of injections, even those using fluid-filled syringes, packing a big punch in a small injection pad. Whether for intramuscular, subcutaneous, and intradermal injections, customers love using this small but mighty medical simulation tool to master them all. If you add one new component to your nursing kit, this versatile and essential injection pad is it.

Product Options

We designed the Paddy small injection pad in two skin tones that closely mimic the look of actual human tissue, creating a more realistic practice experience to enhance the educational value.

  • Light skin tone: SKU INJ-SP-01

  • Dark skin tone: SKU: INJ-SP-01D

Use Instructions

The Paddy small injection pad is incredibly easy to use, requires virtually no maintenance outside routine cleaning, and needs no special care other than to keep it dry.

Upon receiving your order, follow these use instructions for best results:

  1. Remove the injection pad, tray, and epidermis layers from the packaging.
  2. Prepare the product for intradermal injection by peeling the backing from the replaceable epidermis layer. Wipe the top of the pad with rubbing alcohol. (Skip this step for intramuscular and subcutaneous practice injections.)
  3. Place the epidermis layer on top of the injection pad and press to adhere. (Skip this step for intramuscular and subcutaneous practice injections.)
  4. Perform the desired injection procedure per clinical protocols. Be aware some injections may cause leakage from the bottom of the pad, depending on the injection location and fluid volume.
  5. Clean up by squeezing the pad over a sink or paper towel to remove any residual liquid.

Tips and Tricks:

  • The edges of the epidermis layer may curl up if left in a humid environment. Press on the edges to flatten.
  • It is normal for some liquid to ooze through the epidermis layer onto the surface of the small injection pad. Rest assured that this will not compromise the product’s performance.
  • Routinely soak in antimicrobial dish soap and let it air dry.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.
