Insulin patch pump is a device that is used for the delivery of insulin. An insulin patch pump is worn directly on the body where it gets attached discretely due to the adhesive present on the insulin patch pump. Because of the presence of this adhesive on insulin patch pump, no infusion set and tubing are required for the attachment of the pump to the body which makes the process of taking up insulin convenient for the patients.
According to the data of centers for disease control and prevention more than 1 out of 10 adults in the U.S. is suffering from diabetes. Out of this huge population, many people skip their insulin doses regularly owing to the busy lifestyle, skipped meals, embarrassment, emotional problems, and travel. Insulin patch pumps directly deliver insulin from the patch, and so it can solve the problem of patients skipping the insulin doses. According to studies insulin patch pumps have also been shown to reduce the number of cases of severe hypoglycemia as compared to the multiple injections of insulin per day.
