If you’re one who suffers from trypanophobia – that’s the fear of needles, then you might want to heave a sigh of relief knowing that PharmaJet is on the right track in delivering its needle-free injection technology to the masses in the near future.

While it won’t be 100% painless (since pain is subjective and varies from one person to another), it is capable of delivering a more gentle injection – similar to how a tiny rubber band snaps against your skin. PharmaJet’s spring-powered gadget will rely on a high-velocity stream of liquid to deliver vaccines or medication, with the entire seemingly painless process taking less than one-third of a second.
