Challenges of Connected Pen Injectors and Autoinjectors

Researchers at Tampere University (Finland) would like to recruit people over the age of 18 who use insulin pen injectors or autoinjectors to manage their diabetes to take part in a study. The study aims to understand more about the challenges linked with 'connected' devices - devices that use wireless connections (like Bluetooth or NFC) to share data with diabetes management apps - such as smart insulin pens.

The team's research will focus on cybersecurity concerns, usability issues, technical glitches, and costs related to these devices. Insights from this study could help to develop connected injection devices that are easier to use, integrate with apps, that people with diabetes can make full use of to help them manage their condition better.

Taking part involves completing a short survey, which can be found here.
