A smart innovation, the I-Port acts as an insulin delivery channel directly through subcutaneous tissue. Once the I-port is applied, you can then use a needle or insulin pen to deliver insulin or Symlin or Byetta without the need for new shots to the skin. The needle stays above the skin and the I-port delivers through a small channel. A single patch can take 75 injections and can be worn for 72 hours. It is also small enough to be hidden under clothing and pledges to limit bruising and increase compliance to injection therapy. The I-port is available by prescription. Patton Medical also provides demos and information.
