The Asiamed Apex is a precisely engineered, sterile, disposable, semi-permanent auricular acupuncture needle for maximum patient comfort. These miniature ear stud-like needles are made from high-quality surgical stainless steel. The Apex needle is designed for a stronger stimulation effect than the traditional Press Tack needle. The needle is simple to handle and insert using the applicator. The magnetic insert on the applicator allows manipulation of the needle after it is inserted and provides additional stimulation. The needle can be secured in place with an adhesive plaster (supplied).
