InPen™ Smart Insulin Pen data shows the system’s unique reminders improve treatment outcomes for those using multiple daily injections

Results show that the use of InPen resulted in an increase in Time in Range among those in the studies ​

DUBLIN – June 23, 2023 – Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT), the global leader in medical technology, presented an oral presentation and a late-breaking poster on its InPen™ Smart Insulin Pen (SIP). These latest results were presented this weekend at the 83rd American Diabetes Association (ADA) Scientific Sessions in San Diego, CA.

The oral presentation, which was presented at ADA on Friday, June 23, reported on the impact of meal-dosing behavior (missed and late) on glycemic control in adult and pediatric InPen users with type 1 or type 2 diabetes (n=5,153) and found that more frequent on-time dosing correlated with improved Time in Range.

The late-breaking poster presentation, which will be presented on Saturday, June 24, evaluated the impact of correction dose timing (n=857), leveraging the system’s unique ability to track active insulin, among adult and pediatric InPen users with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The study found that those that delivered at least one correction dose per day within 3 hours of a previous dose, associated with more doses per day, achieved higher Time in Range, without an increase in Time Below Range, when compared to those that gave a correction dose more than three hours after the previous dose.  

“This data adds to the growing body of evidence that the use of intelligent dosing systems that go beyond just providing a number and in addition provide an action not only provide clinical benefits, as those demonstrated in these studies, but also help to simplify diabetes management by reducing the number of decisions individuals need to make on a daily basis,” said Robert Vigersky, Chief Medical Officer, Medtronic Diabetes. “We are pleased to be able to bring the widest breadth of solutions and meet individuals where they are in their diabetes journey regardless of how they prefer to dose their insulin.”

The InPen is a reusable smart insulin pen that uses Bluetooth® technology to send dose information to a mobile app. Offering dose calculations and tracking, InPen helps take some of the mental math out of diabetes management.

Medtronic is committed to simplifying and improving diabetes management through the advancement of smart algorithms with reduced patient input. These strong clinical and real-world data findings support the company’s mission to continuously deliver new technology that helps people achieve better glucose control and spend less time managing highs and lows.
