i-Port Advance

i-Port Advance™ is a small injection port worn on the body that users inject into instead of directly into the skin. i-Port Advance is for people on insulin injection therapy who want to minimise the intrusion of injections on daily life. It can be worn for 3 days or 75 injections, whichever comes first. i-Port Advance reduces the number of skin punctures from an average of 4-6 per day to just one every 3 days. i-Port Advance is suitable for adults and children. 

 

There were times before when diabetes restricted me because I didn’t want to take the extra injections. Now, with i-Port Advance™ I can enjoy the food because I don’t mind taking the extra injection, and I feel just like any other teen in the room.

Why Use i-Port Advance™?

  • Take insulin doses without the pain of additional skin punctures

Please inform your diabetes team responsible for your/your child’s care that i-Port Advance is being used.

In the past, the thought of additional injections each day was overwhelming to me. With i-Port Advance™, I now take those additional injections, allowing me better control and a better quality of life.In the past, the thought of additional injections each day was overwhelming to me.
