Acufast tubes are compact, flexible, and pinchable providing rigidity but also allowing for a variety of new needling techniques. The reduced tube thickness means that less plastic is used and the individual pouch packs are fully recyclable.
Practitioners are able to grasp the needle handle with the tube by pinching the tube while the needle is still in the package. The time and overall procedure of loading the tube is very quick compared to other bulk packaged needles often considered a deterrent in bulk packed needles for tube users.
Tubes are sold separately in packs of 5 giving practitioners the option of using the tubes as needed.
