3 Days skin puncture free? Yes, it is possible
i-Port Advance™ is a small injection port that lets you take your injectable medications without having to puncture your skin for each injection. It’s easy to wear and easy to use. The port can be worn for up to three days* during all normal activities, including sleeping, bathing and exercise.
"Since beginning to use the i-Port I’ve found it to be a great help to manage my blood sugar levels as it requires much fewer injections! Would recommend to anyone having to take injections for sure."

"My son of 9 was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and the injections were becoming increasingly more difficult. His little legs were becoming a dartboard and each injection hurt as it was hitting a bruise from the previous one. I heard about the i-Port from another parent and decided to try it. At first the cost put me off due to being on a very low income, however after a seriously distressing injection I just ordered it. I am now a continuous buyer of this product.
It has given my son a little bit of life back. He is so much more independent than before as he now does it himself and this is wonderful. He is able to do it at school without someone having to do it for him, so he has even more control. It may seem a little expensive but when you get the box of 10 and see the relief on your child's face after each injection it is so worth every penny. I will use these now every 3 days until he moves onto the pump. I would highly recommend this product for any child with Type 1 Diabetes."
