(1)Teflon canula flexes when wearer does.  Metal needles don't and sting
when flexed.

(2)Quick disconnect (at canula) feature unavailable with needles or sof-sets
(5" tail).

(3)Compact size of infusion site.  Only about one square inch of skin is
covered by adhesive.

(4)No additional taping or waterproofing is needed.

(5)Visibility of infusion site.
