Reusable Diabetes Injector Pen

How does InPen work?

InPen works exactly like a traditional insulin pen but has Bluetooth® technology that connects to an easy-to-use smartphone app.

InPen tracks each dose and delivers all of your data to the app on your smartphone. From there, the app calculates doses, displays blood glucose, and tracks insulin levels, storing up to a year of data. Watch our Welcome Video to learn more.

How does the InPen dose calculator work?

The InPen dose calculator computes insulin dose recommendations based on previous insulin doses, current  blood glucose levels, and carbohydrate intake. Your target blood glucose, insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio, and insulin sensitivity parameters are provided by your healthcare professional and entered into the app through an easy-to-follow setup process.

You simply pair your InPen to the app, enter your settings provided by your physician, and you are on your way. Watch our How to Calculate and Deliver a Dose Video to learn more.
