Insulin delivery devices have evolved drastically since their invention in 1922. They are all aimed to provide insulin to the patients with minimal discomfort.


Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas. It plays a significant role in the functioning of the body such as,

  • Regulating glucose metabolism.

  • Transporting amino acid within the cells.

  • Stimulating Lipogenesis

  • Decreasing the breakdown of lipids.

Insulin is primarily used to control blood glucose levels in people with diabetes. The techniques used earlier in insulin injections were cumbersome and painful and were different from the techniques employed today. Modern methods are a lot easier and are designed to help the patient, even a child, autonomously take the insulin shot without any help.
