About CeQur Simplicity

What is CeQur Simplicity? How is CeQur Simplicty different than insulin syringes or insulin pens?


CeQur Simplicity is a 3-day wearable insulin Patch designed to deliver rapid-acting insulin at mealtimes, snack times, and when glucose levels are high. The Patch is intended for subcutaneous (under the skin), delivery of rapid-acting insulin for the management of diabetes in adults requiring insulin. The Patch is compatible with either NovoLog® (aspart) U-100 or Humalog® (lispro) U-100 insulin. The Patch is applied to the abdomen (belly) with a reusable Inserter, and insulin is delivered by squeezing the two buttons on the sides of the Patch. The buttons can be squeezed through clothing. Each squeeze delivers 2 units of insulin through a small flexible tube called a cannula placed just below the skin. The Patch can be worn while bathing, showering, swimming, exercising, and sleeping. The Patch holds up to 200 units of insulin. The Patch should be thrown away after using it for 3 days and replaced with a new Patch.
