The introduction of the insulin pen has made insulin administration easier, safer, and more accurate. It is very convenient and easy to carry anywhere. Until recently, what has been lacking in insulin pen technology is the ability to keep a record of the last time you injected yourself. For a long time, you needed to jot the time and amount of insulin used to prevent double dosing. Today, InsulCheck has come up with a smart insulin pen cover that monitors when you last injected yourself with insulin.

Occasionally, you may have asked yourself, “Didn’t I just inject myself 20 minutes ago?” If you’re on a busy schedule and find yourself asking this question more often, then you have to try InsulCheck. Innovation Zed Ltd., an Ireland-based company that markets InsulCheck, claims that the insulin pen add-on device can help you avoid the danger of double injections.

According to the InsulCheck website, the smart insulin pen cover is a real product created out of personal necessity.

“Like many genuine innovations, InsulCheck was born from personal experience. It was set up in 2009 by founders John Hughes and William Cirillo. John has Type 1 diabetes and is insulin-dependent. He suffered a hypo-glycaemic event and was hospitalised because he double injected by mistake. As he negotiated his recovery, he began to think about how he can make sure he and fellow patients with diabetes would not find themselves in this position again. The concept was born there and then.”
