Device hopes to draw blood pain free

TAP device

(WTVR) —  Researchers at M-I-T are trying to make life easier on anyone who has to have blood drawn. They hope to make this happen by using a device, that can draw blood without the pain. The device is called “TAP.”

The device uses needles as thin as an eye lash, then it pulls blood through pores at high speeds and into the device.

Their primary goal, is that you won’t be able to feel it.

The same researchers are trying to use the technology to delver medicine too.They hope they could use the device to eliminate some types of injections.
