Double-injecting insulin  -  never again

InsulCheck is a product born from personal experience. Our MD, John Hughes is insulin dependent and collapsed in a public park following a double injection of insulin just two years ago. His hypo-glycaemic coma taught him a harsh lesson in diabetes management. The story of InsulCheck is John’s story.

This is a threat that 50 million insulin pen users worldwide live with every day. John’s experience will be one recognised by people with diabetes and their families everywhere. After dinner one evening, he took the dog for a walk and forgetting about his pre-dinner injection, he injected again.

It was only when his wife went out looking for him that he was found in the local park, unconscious and in a coma. He vividly remembers the shock of waking up in a park on a wet September evening, with badly bruised knees and his wife and an inquisitive German Shepherd standing over him. Diagnosed as insulin-dependent in his early forties, John had been immersed in the technology sector and had held numerous senior roles in Irish technology start ups. He also had years of experience in dealing with his condition while maintaining both his busy career and his role of husband and father to five children.

After recovering in hospital, he realised there must be a technology solution to what is essentially a straightforward problem. As a person with diabetes, he lived with this anxiety and uncertainty every day and he decided that there had to be a way of eradicating it.

He realised then, that it came down to information. Keeping a record of the time you last injected means you‘ll have the information you need to be able to avoid double injecting or know if you missed one, allowing you to catch up – if needs be. When initial thoughts turned to design, it was agreed that InsulCheck must work automatically with all insulin pens, be easy-to-use, very readable, light to carry and discreet.

Peace-of-mind is a powerful emotion. Knowing for sure when you last injected, removes any anxiety or doubt you might feel and puts you safely back in control of your condition.

InsulCheck is a solution for people with diabetes that was conceived and designed by a fellow diabetes sufferer. From today, double injecting need no longer be a worry for people with diabetes worldwide.
