The InnoLet device is used by people with diabetes who need to inject insulin to manage their blood sugar levels. Made by Novo Nordisk, the device has been designed with a simple-to-use dose selector dial that features large numbers. The dial clicks audibly to help visually and physically impaired patients to set and inject the correct insulin dose. The cap provides a compartment for the needle and protects the insulin from sunlight. This is a demonstration model used to teach patients how to use the device.
