Medtronic i-Port Advance injection aid

I-Port Advance with syringeThe Medtronic i-Port Advance injection aid is a small injection port worn on the body that users inject into instead of injecting directly into the skin. It’s aimed at people on insulin who want to minimise the intrusion of injecting on daily life. It can be worn for up to three days (or 75 injections, whichever comes first).

The i-Port Advance reduces the number of skin punctures from an average of 4-6 per day to just one every three days. There ought only to be 10 insertions as opposed to 120 injections (based on typical 30-day period). The device could help to minimise physical and emotional injection barriers (such as needlephobia) and is suitable for both adults and children. Maximum needle length 8mm and minimum needle length 5mm, it can be used with insulin pens. Available though Medtronic Diabetes UK.
