The current method of injecting insulin with a needle requires the use of a complex apparatus. It also causes pain, infection, psychological discomfort and possible allergic reactions to high concentrations of insulin or hypoglycemic for patients who are managing diabetes. As an alternative solution, this new technology and method provide diabetes patients with a safe and convenient solution for insulin absorption.
Insulin is injected not with a needle, but by letting the insulin be absorbed into the skin on a patient's wrist. In principle, when an infrared lamp applies heat to a porous TiNi (nitinol) shape memory alloy, which is transplantable in a living body, insulin inside the porous body is absorbed into the skin tissues at skin contact through a capillary phenomenon. This simplifies the process and minimises the potential for mistakes from self-administered injections by automatically detecting the patient’s condition and blood sugar levels.
The NONNOS Smart Insulin Watch is not just an insulin injector but also a device that provides new hope, health, and happiness to diabetes patients. It employs a completely new and innovative injection technology that is developed based on a vision and philosophy for better healthcare.
