Huma-Pen Memoir - insulin pen injector

humapen_memoir.jpg

At last there comes a device that reduces more than a few concerns of diabetics dependent on insulin. And it happens to be the digital insulin pen, Huma-Pen Memoir, designed by scientists at the Battelle Memorial Institute, for the Indianapolis-based drug company Eli Lilly.

The insulin pen injector not only allows the user to dial in the dosage of insulin he/she needs to take, but also cleverly records the dosage, and the date-time of 16 injections at a time. Thereby it plainly addresses the critical every-day issues that diabetics face of maintaining the records of their insulin dosages for analysis by physicians and to avoid overdosage. The device is also an inconspicuous way of taking insulin since it resembles an innocuous looking pen once the cap is replaced. Pretty neat.

The injector is designed to last for about 3 years and uses insulin cartridges and half-inch needles which have to be replaced after every use. The Huma-Pen is due to retail in the U.S. at a modest $45.
