Choose fewer injections with the new Medtronic i-port Advance.
Do you skip insulin injections because of pain or discomfort, at the risk of your health and expense of your lifestyle?
You’re not alone. According to a survey commissioned by the American Association of Diabetes Educators, 47% of people said they were more likely to take injections regularly if there was something available to help ease the pain.1
Using i-port Advance will reduce the number of injections that puncture your skin with a needle - lessening pain, lowering anxiety and reducing inconvenience.1
With i-port Advance, you can:
The i-port is applied with virtually painless* insertion, leaving a soft cannula under the skin and giving you a means to inject medications such as insulin, with fewer punctures, over three days of normal activity - including showering, swimming and exercising.
It is compatible with pens and syringes and can be used by children and adults.
Standard vs. Injection Port
The i-port Advance is designed for anyone that needs a multiple daily dose of a subcutaneous medication - including children, adults and the elderly.
Plus, the i-port Advance isn’t just for people dependent on insulin. Anyone who needs a regular injection from a syringe or pen, of medications that are administered under the skin (subcutaneous), can enjoy the relief and greater comfort provided by the i-port unit.
There are 2 models of i-port available: a 6mm or 9mm cannula length.
1. Pull back on the centre, place on skin and press both round indentations, then press center to ensure adhesion
2. After insertion, pull to remove inserter
3. Inject with standard pen or syringe.
