Danish medical equipment manufacturers Novo Nordisk have launched the "InnoLet", an insulin injection device designed to make the delivery of insulin into the body easier for elderly, or partially-sighted people. The device, developed together with the Danish Institute for the Blind and Partially Sighted (DIBPS) and the Spanish National Organisation for the Blind (ONCE), allows for a one-handed delivery of the insulin dose. Roger Lassing of Novo Nordisk described the device as egg-timer shaped with large printed numbers. The design was a result of comprehensive market research which prompted the company to create a large-scale device in order to compensate for failing manual dexterity in the elderly.
