New Battery-less Insulin Pen for Managing Diabetes

"Not all diabetic patients want or require a continuous insulin delivery system, however. In lieu of regular injections, many turn to injector pens, which are much easier for patients to manage than a regular injection because of measured dosage and simplified, less painful delivery. Cambridge Consultants has leveraged smart technology to create KiCoPen, an injector pen that should vastly improve diabetes management with a number of helpful features. “The device captures the exact insulin dose delivered and wirelessly transmits the information to an associated smartphone app,” said Bo Petersson, head of diabetes care at Cambridge Consultants. “The associated app seamlessly gathers data on blood glucose levels, activity, and food consumption, and integrates it with insulin dosage.
