The sofset is like a thumbtack. If it gets pushed hard enough it will 
stick you and create additional tissue damage. You might want to consider 
using Silohettes/Tender/Comfort sets. They go in sideways and do not 
created this problem when pushed upon. You would actually have to grab it 
and wiggle it around to cause any problem at all, and that would be very 
difficult. Call you pump supplier and ask for a couple of samples.
