As the proportion of infertile women continues to rise due to changes in the environment and lifestyle, pre-pregnancy and infertile women are required to self-inject at least once a day during artificial insemination. And then there's the outside activity of the prospective pregnant woman, and if you inject it at the same time every time, it'll have to be convenient to inject it outside. In the case of needles used at that time, they have to be disposed of separately as medical waste, but it's very inconvenient. And in the case of infertile women, the success rate of artificial insemination is not high, so environmental pollution that occurs during several attempts also occurs. With JET-INJECTION, prescribed injections are subcutaneous injections, so this technique of penetrating into the skin using high pressure jets of liquid drugs and delivering drugs under the skin without needles provides an intuitive and stable injection for prospective pregnant women. After receiving the prescription at the hospital, map it to the abdomen with the TrueDepth camera system and convert the scanning position to a coordinate value through the position sensor in the device to guide the scanning position.
