Patient Considerations


Many components. Must carry insulin vials and large syringes but nothing attached to the body. 

Active Lifestyle

Limited Adjustability. No way to adjust long-acting insulin for higher activity on the fly.

Avoiding Highs and Lows

Limited customizability. Requires a high level of engagement and effort to avoid highs and lows but can be paired with a CGM for improved blood sugar control. 

Easy to Use

Many steps. Requires effort to figure out doses and deliver insulin every single time you need it.

Easy Insulin Dosing

Requires attention. You have to do the math to figure out your dose. Unable to adjust basal in real-time.

Fewer Fingersticks

Frequent finger-sticks are required. 


Hideable. Vials and syringes can be hidden when not in use but very visible when in use. Frequent injections are unavoidable.
