Insulin injection doesn’t have to hurt, NONNOS is a concept smart insulin watch that frees you from that needle injection. It works based on the principle of Thermophoresis where insulin is released and absorbed by the skin. Current method of insulin injection with a needle requires the use of a complex apparatus, not to mention it causes pain and psychological discomfort, there’s also possibility of allergic reactions due to high concentrations of insulin. This new innovative method wants to offer diabetic patients with better and convenient solution of insulin absorption
Designed by Inno-Partners and TINIKO, NONNOS injects insulin to user’s body not through needle but through absorption onto the wrist’s skin. In principle, when an infrared lamp applies heat to a porous TiNi (nitinol) shape memory alloy that is transplanted in a living body, insulin inside porous body can be absorbed onto skin tissue through a capillary phenomenon. This process simplifies and minimizes potential of mistake from self-administered injections since this device can detect patient’s condition and blood sugar levels.
