Patient Considerations


Many components. Have to carry InPen and pen needles. CGM is attached to the body and requires more tape than other sensors. 

Active Lifestyle

Light on body. Pens are easy to use and do not remain attached to the body, sensor is waterproof. 

Avoiding Highs and Lows

Limited customizability. System integrates the Guardian Connect CGM for high or low alerts but requires manual dose adjustment and limits the ability to adjust insulin levels throughout the day. 

Easy to Use

Simple design. Replaces regular insulin pen. No additional devices to add on. 

Easy Insulin Dosing

Dosing recommendations. Displays dosing recommendations and reminders for long-acting insulin. 

Fewer Fingersticks

2 daily finger-sticks are needed to calibrate the sensor. 


Hideable. Pens are portable but visible when in use. Frequent injections are unavoidable. View recommendations and data on a smartphone.
