The NovoPen Echo insulin pen has been available for about a year, an improvement over the previous versions of this iconic pen as it comes with a memory function which records the last insulin dose in units as well as the time since the last dose (segments on a dial represents an hour since the last injection and there’s an end-of-dose click for reassurance, so you know it’s been delivered.. It also has half-unit dosing, so very useful for young children or those who are very insulin sensitive with a need for very low dose capabilities. It comes in two colours and a choice of fun skins to peronalise the pen if you wish. Speak to your healthcare professional to request one. For more information (but not to purchase) see this webpage: NovoPen Echo.
