Through our own experience and our good, long-standing customer relationships, we know exactly what requirements acupuncturists place on the quality of acupuncture needles.
We are committed to top-quality products, so that you and your patients can feel safe using them.
For over 30 years we have been developing and selling acupuncture needles and acupuncture supplies worldwide. That is why we are not only very familiar with the quality requirements and medical technology standards, but can also offer you the security and excellent product quality through established control procedures.
Even after relocating our production back to the home of acupuncture, we have retained the control procedures that acupuncture needle manufacturers have to perform. Extremely precise measuring procedures ensure that only those products are put on the market that have passed our strict in-house quality control here in Germany. This means that asiamed products are safe products of excellent quality for an almost painless acupuncture treatment.
Exceptionally gentle insertion
Whether a needle causes pain when piercing the skin depends on how easily it can penetrate the upper skin layer (cutis). This is because the cutis has a large number of pain receptors, unlike the subcutaneous skin tissue.
Here is a comparison of the particularly gentle insertion characteristics of asiamed acupuncture needles:
The path to the perfect acupuncture needle
Acupuncturists and patients aim for a successful treatment. In reaching this goal, an exceptionally gentle penetration of the acupuncture needle into the skin plays an important role.
Our ambition is the perfect acupuncture needle. Our objective: Uncomprimising quality.
In the production of excellent acupuncture needles, five components are decisive:
- Quality of the applied steel
Low-quality steel contains entrapped air that would cause a break of the material due to the extremely thin wire diameters. asiamed only uses finest quality medical stainless steel to assure the unique flexibility and a flawless material compositon.
- Precision-sharpening of the pinpoint
The grinding and sharpening of a cambered pinpoint to a length of only 0,2 mm is counted, considering the extremely thin diameters of the needles, to the fine arts of automatic production. asiamed has designed and developed high-precision machines for processing steel specifically for the fabrication of acupuncture needles in collaboration with universities and manufacturers.
- Accurate smoothing of the surface
The polishing and grading of the needle requires experience and technical know-how. Our acupuncture needles are polished, respectively electro-polished and this way recieve their particularly smooth surface structure.
The polished needles are coated with a filmy silicone layer on the whole length of the needle, that is also applied in the production of injection cannulas. The medical silicone of highest quality adheres strongly to the needle. Of course, every needle is sterilized and safely packaged.
- Quality control
To ensure our product standard, the finished needles are subject to a strict quality control. Only acupuncture needles, that meet our high specifications will pass the quality check and be released into the market. By this means we make sure that both users and patients can rely on our products.
