Meridius® The Acupuncture Supply Co are Ireland's only sole supplier of the special Meridius Jet acupuncture needles which are made with unique precise moulding technology. Each needle is supplied with one tube, the needle and the tube are fusion bonded by ultrasonic technology. The highly visible plastic handle is long and with a wave-shaped surface, which makes it easy to grip. The materials are lightweight polypropylene plastic and measure 0.16mm dia. x 15mm length. The tube edge is rounded in comparison with other rigid edges, painless for the patient, as well as to make acupuncturists’ finger uncomfortable when the finger hits the tube during the tapping. Sterilised by EO gas, shelf-life is 3 years.
