A fine stream of insulin to maximise skin penetration and ease comfort.
The InsuJet™ operation principle is based on pressure. Insulin is pressed at high speed through a small orifice in the nozzle, creating a fine stream of insulin that easily penetrates the skin. In the subcutaneous layer, the insulin follows the path of least resistance and spreads in a relatively large, cone-like formation. Compared to an injection with a needle based system, where the insulin is merely dispersed in a droplet near the needle opening, the larger dispersion increases the absorption into the circulation. What’s more the rapid uptake of insulin with the InsuJet™ is virtually painless, as the jet itself is thinner than a needle.
Unique safety mechanism
The InsuJet™ is equipped with a unique safety mechanism that ensures that the contact area between the nozzle and administration site is not breached during injection.
The mechanism is activated by gently pushing the device to the chosen administration site. The insulin is only released when the device is pushed to the administration site with sufficient pressure. It’s as simple as that!
