Just one application every three days

i-Port Advance injection port is easy to apply. It includes a built-in inserter, which gives you a quick, virtually painless1 application. Only a soft flexible tube, called a cannula stays under the skin. Once applied, you inject your medication through the port instead of your skin (no medication is stored inside the device2).

i-Port Advance injection port is small and discrete, and sticks to you like a Band-Aid®.

Just one application every three days.

9 things you probably don't know about i-Port Advance injection port

  1. What is an i-Port Advance injection port?

    It’s a small and discrete patch that sticks to you like a Band-Aid®. You change the port every three days. This means you don’t need to poke your skin every single time you need to take a shot.

  2. Who should consider i-Port Advance injection port?
    • Those newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and are not ready for a pump.
    • If you have type 2 diabetes and are new to taking insulin, this is a great way to improve the transition to taking shots.
    • Anyone who experiences the emotional challenges of shots like fear, anxiety, and stress or the physical impact of shots like bruising, scaring, or pain.
    • It’s especially beneficial to children and their loved ones, who often get anxiety when it’s time to take a shot.
  3. How does it change my experience with shots?

    If you take an average of five shots a day, you can reduce the number of times you poke yourself from 150 to 10 in just 1 month! That’s 93% less pokes.

  4. How and where do I apply the injection port to my body?

    The built-in serter will guide the application process. Click here for the instructional video. The abdomen, upper thighs, back of arms, hips and upper buttocks are all good locations. Once the port is applied, you can put the needle of your syringe or pen through the port any time you need a shot.

  5. Will it get in the way of my life?

    Absolutely not! You can continue your activities like exercising, sleeping and bathing as you normally would.

  6. Does it matter if I use a pen or syringe?

    You can use the port with pens or syringes. Needles need to be 5-8mm (3/16-5/16”) in length and 32-28 gauge.

  7. How does it work with both long acting and rapid acting insulin?

    You can use both, but there is a rule: Always inject rapid acting insulin first, wait one hour, then inject your long acting insulin.

  8. What are people saying who have tried an injection port?

    In a patient survey: 98% think it’s comfortable to wear, 99% say that it’s more beneficial than shots, and 100% reported that it helps decrease anxiety3.

  9. How much will it cost me?

    You can experience the port for as low as $59.99 per month4. Ordering is easy; just enroll in our subscription program with free monthly shipping. A reimbursement tool kit is also available if you want to request coverage with your insurance.
