The Medtronic 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.
Why Use i-Port Advance™?
i-Port Advance offers patient benefits of less pain, anxiety and improved quality of life
With i-Port Advance, you can:
- Take insulin doses without the pain of additional skin punctures
- Avoid skipped or missed meals
- Minimise physical and emotional injection barriers
- 10 Insertions vs. 120 Injections (Based on typical 30 day period)
Please inform your diabetes team responsible for your/your child’s care that i-Port Advance is being used.
