Important Safety Information: i-Port Advance injection port is prescription-indicated for patients who take multiple daily subcutaneous injections of physician prescribed medications, including insulin. The device may remain in place for up to 72 hours to accommodate multiple drug injections without the discomfort of additional needle sticks. Site infection and/or irritation are possible. Patients experiencing such symptoms should immediately consult their healthcare provider and/or discontinue use.

Why Use i-Port Advance?

Do you ever skip an injection due to the pain or discomfort caused by it?

You are not alone. According to a survey commissioned by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), 47% of people said they would be more likely to administer their injections regularly if a product was available to ease the pain and discomfort.1

i-Port Advance directly addresses these findings by providing a tool to reduce the pain and anxiety associated with each injection. By using an injection port, you will reduce the number of injections that puncture your skin.

With an injection port, you can:

  • Take insulin doses without the pain of additional skin punctures
  • Avoid skipped or missed meals
  • Minimize physical and emotional injection barriers 1, 2

How i-Port Advance Works

i-Port Advance is easy to put on. It includes a built-in inserter device which gives you a quick, virtually painless* insertion. Only a soft flexible tube, called a cannula stays under the skin. Once inserted, you inject your medication through the i-Port Advance instead of your skin (no medication is stored inside the device).

It’s a prescription only product that can be used on patients of all ages who use pen or syringe to inject their prescribed medications, including insulin. Two injection port models are available: a 6mm or 9mm cannula length. Talk to your healthcare professional about which cannula length is right for you.
