Connected Pens and Caps and Dose Titration Competitive Landscape – June 16, 2023

Executive Highlights

  • The tables below include an overview of both the Connected Insulin Pen and Cap landscape and the Insulin Dose Titration landscape, to the best of our knowledge. The first table outlines currently available connected insulin pens and caps as well as publicly disclosed future projects and timelines. The second table provides and overview of players currently offering or working to bring insulin dose titration systems to market. Due to partnerships and overlap between the two fields we have created this combined competitive landscape. Entries in both tables are listed by the company or institution that owns the regulatory submission.
  • This competitive landscape now includes a range of corporate updates and recent M&A activity, including:
  • Within the connected pen and pen cap landscape, a notable difference across devices is whether or not the connected pen system calculates dosing recommendations. As outlined in our competitive landscape below, currently Medtronic’s InPen and the Bigfoot Unity have dose calculating capabilities. Lilly’s Tempo System has dose calculating integrated into its pens in the US due to its partnership with Welldoc. Although not yet launched, Novo Nordisk partnered with Diabeloop earlier this year (March 2023) to integrate basal and bolus dosing recommendations in NovoPen 6 and NovoPen Echo Plus.
    • Tracking insulin doses is also an important feature of connected pen systems, which varies by device. Medtronic’s InPen, Biocorp’s Mallya pen cap, Lilly’s Tempo Smart Button, Novo Nordisk’s NovoPen 6 and NovoPen Echo Plus, InsulClock, Innovation Zed’s InsulCheck Connect and InsulCheck Dose, and Ypsomed’s Ypsomate On and SmartPilot all track insulin dose. As well, the Bigfoot Unity system tracks recommended insulin dose; however, it does not record the details of the actual dose given.
  • We acknowledge this list may be incomplete, as there are likely stealth start-ups and academic groups working to develop smart insulin pens and titration systems.
  • We will continuously update this list as timelines change, but it is only up to date as noted above. All the information included comes from publicly disclosed information or our own coverage. If you spot something you think should be changed, please email us.

Connected Insulin Pen and Cap Competitive Landscape

  • The table below includes an overview of connected pen/cap competitive landscape, as far as we aware. This list may be incomplete, as there are likely other stealth startups, large companies, or academic group working to commercialize this technology.
