INPEN

TIMESULIN

InPen is a reusable injector pen that

includes a smartphone interface

leading to 'smart' insulin delivery.

It can help calculate your doses and,

when paired via Bluetooth with the

smartphone app, the InPen delivery

system keeps tabs on how many

units you received at your last

injection. Via the app, enter your

blood glucose and what you

intend to eat and the correct dose is

recommended, taking into

account recent doses to avoid

insulin stacking. There are also

optional dose reminders and

temperature alerts, which will make

you aware of extreme hot or cold

conditions that could render your

insulin ineffective. The InPen lasts

for one year - no recharging needed. John Sjölund, also a Type 1 diabetic,

founded Timesulin with his brother

Andreas. Timesulin's pen cap tracks

your last insulin dose, counting up

from zero to a maximum of 100

hours. The next step is to build a cap

that connects to your smartphone.

The brothers Sjölund, together with

Marcel Botha, founded Patients

Pending Ltd, which was acquired

last year by American company

Bigfoot Biomedical, Inc., which

wanted its Bluetooth-enabled

insulin pen dose capture

technology. Jeffrey Brewer, Bigfoot

Biomedical President and CEO

explained purchasing the

company saying, "We believe

integrated systems are the future of

diabetes therapy."

A simple cap that slots on top of

your insulin pen and shows the time

elapsed since your last injection. It

works with the majority of insulin

pens, both disposable and reusable

(check the website for the full list it

fits). John Hughes invented the pen

cap due to his own need, as a Type 1

diabetic, and accidentally doubledosing

his insulin. He says:

"Diabetes isn't a choice. How you

manage it is. Knowing for certain

when you last injected removes any

anxiety or doubt."

INSULCHECK And with options in blue, grey, and

pink, you can even add a bit of

colour to your management. InPen

is available in the USA where it

retails at a fairly steep $799 (£640).
