The shape of the O'TOM TICK TWISTER takes into account the tick's morphology, it is adapted to any size of ticks and is really easy to handle. The O'TOM TICK TWISTER is made of an unbreakable plastic resistant to wear. The O'TOM TICK TWISTER can therefore be used indefinitely. While removing a tick, it is essential not to compress it, reducing the risk of saliva back-flow. A tick's saliva contains irritating substances and sometimes microorganisms that can lead to infections andor allergies. Tweezers and other instruments exert a pressure on the tick. O'TOM TICK TWISTER does not compress the body of the tick. The tick's rostrum (the part that is embedded in the skin and improperly referred to as "the tick's head") is covered with backward pointing spikes that allow the tick to "anchor" in the skin. By pulling up on the tick, the spikes will rise and lock the rostrum in the skin. The tick may break leaving body parts resting in the skin and causing a painful inflammation, or an infection. By twisting, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, and the tick is easily removed, without traction, decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum. The O'TOM TICK TWISTER does not compress the tick's abdomen during removal, reducing the risk of transmission of diseases. The O'TOM TICK TWISTER removes ticks by rotation and not by pulling; decreasing the risks of breaking the rostrum.
