NeatNick’s automated sweeping blade achieves a controlled depth of incision that is significantly safer than what medical literature has designated as acceptable depths of puncture for preterm and term infants. (1-3) Its controlled depth level is comparable to other automated heel lancets,4 yet it is designed to minimize infant pain through a high-speed nick and greater precision.
