Frequently Asked Questions
A reusable injector pen plus an intuitive smartphone interface equals smart insulin delivery. Simplify your diabetes care plan.
How does InPen work?
The InPen Insulin Delivery System works just like a standard insulin pen, but with the support of Bluetooth® technology and an easy-to-use smartphone app.
The InPen injector pen tracks injections and seamlessly delivers the information to your smartphone. From there, the app helps you calculate doses, monitor insulin status, and stores up to a year of data.
How does the InPen dose calculator work?
The calculator computes insulin doses based on previous injections, blood glucose, and carbohydrate intake. Patient-specific target blood glucose, insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio, and insulin sensitivity parameters must be provided by your healthcare professional before use and programmed into the app software.
You simply sync your InPen to the app, load setting information provided by your physician, and you are on your way.

Yes. The InPen dose calculator requires the user to input glucose and carbohydrate data.
