Capping the problem of diabetes with the innovative Vivi Cap-1 insulin pen cap
Before you begin to wonder about the product named in the heading, let us give you some context.
Diabetes occurs when the body doesn’t produce the appropriate level of insulin and even if it does, the body cannot use it effectively. This results in what is known as hyperglycaemia, which is an overload of glucose in the body.
This condition leads to two types of diabetes.
- Type 1 Diabetes: It was earlier known as insulin-dependent or childhood-onset diabetes. This form of diabetes happens when the body produces less insulin than the required amount.
- Type 2 Diabetes: Known as non-insulin dependent or adulthood-onset diabetes before, this occurs when the body cannot use the produced insulin adequately. A person suffering from type 2 diabetes suffers from symptoms such as surplus body weight and physical inactivity.
So why is insulin used by diabetic patients?
Insulin is produced by the pancreas which enables the body to use or store the sugar from the carbohydrate intakes. Insulin is responsible for balancing the blood sugar level in the body and keep it from going too high (hyperglycaemia) or too low (hypoglycaemia). So when the pancreas fails to produce insulin or the insulin is not used by the body, people have to take it from an external source to maintain their sugar levels. This external source is known as an insulin pen.
Insulin has to be kept cool in certain specific temperatures to sustain and maintain its potency and for it to be effective when taken. That is why insulin pens are either refrigerated or kept cool via other alternative methods. The Vivi Cap1, by prominent Israeli manufacturers, TempraMed, is an Insulin Temperature Shield which keeps the insulin cool at in safe temperatures below 29oC/84.2oF using a proprietary intelligent technology by the manufacturer.
The device has a battery with a shelf life of up to 5 years depending on how the person is using it. Vivi Cap1 has an in-built chip with sensors which understands the surrounding temperatures and automatically activates to keep the insulin safe. No human intervention or action is required to activate the device as it starts working as soon as the insulin pen is attached to it.
The device is very portable and is best suited for travellers and especially for diabetic people who live in parts of India where refrigeration and other cooling methods are difficult to find.
