More Details

WARNING This kit definitely contains dangerous things. The flexNT transponder device has not been tested or certified by any regulatory agency for implantation or use inside the human body. Use of this device is strictly at your own risk.

This is a private beta pre-order for the flexNT. The flexNT is a flexible biopolymer treated inlay carrying the NTAG216 chip (the same chip as the xNT), which is approximately 8mm wide by 22mm long. The beta units will be hand treated and trimmed, so not every tag will be uniform size. They will be shipped in small plastic containers with chlorhexidine solution. Installation notes for your body modification or medical professional are as follows;

– Do not install under any gripping surface (e.g. no palm side installations)
– Do not install atop or parallel to any joints (flex device are only “semi-flexible”)
– Incise skin with scalpel, making 9mm wide incision
– Lift/separate dermal layer using elevator tool
– Remove dermal tools from installation site
– Slide flexNT under skin by hand, do not use gripping tools
– Suture to close wound, do not pierce flexNT with suture needle

Things to know about this beta program

– The biopolymer is ISO 10993 and USP Class IV tested and certified, however the final product has not been tested post-processing, meaning material changes during processing could render the final product unsafe in some way. Testing is planned for later, however beta testers will be installing untested products.

– Dangerous Things founder and CEO Amal Graafstra underwent the first installation of a flex line device (a flexNT beta) on 03/02/2016 above the second metacarpal of the ring finger of his left hand. So far the installation has healed excellently and there are no signs of rejection or irritation at the installation site.

– Customers are free to install the flexNT into any area of their body. Even though we use images which suggest installation above the second metacarpal of one of the fingers, it is not an ideal location for such a device. Fingers are filled with tendons, nerve bundles, and very important things all packed into a very tight space. Beta testers are free to choose a location, we just urge you to think about easier locations like the back of the hand or in the arm.

What will be expected of a beta tester

– Full documentation of installation and healing process by way of text and photo posts to the Facebook Beta Group.

– Return of any failed or rejected flexNTs to Dangerous Things for analysis. Please retain the plastic casing in which your flexNT is shipped in for this purpose, just in case.
