About the solution

When facing the daily struggle of trying to effectively manage her condition, and the injection therapy, Catherine knew there had to be a better way. But since she couldn’t find anything on the market, she developed her own device.

"When I first started taking multiple daily insulin injections, I felt like a pin cushion," said Catherine. "I knew there had to be a better way to manage my diabetes without the repeated needle sticks, and I knew that I was not the only person with diabetes who felt this way. So I came up with something better."

So she came up with the I-Port - The i-port injection port is indicated for patients who administer, or to whom is administered multiple daily subcutaneous injections of prescribed medications, including insulin.

Because she understood that are a lot of people facing the same problem, the inventor founded her company, in 2004 – Patton Medical Devices.

The product was approved by FDA.
