Here is how Timesulin works
Step 1 – Replace Your Old Plastic Cap with a Smart, Lightweight Timer
So you are looking to see how Timesulin works – the good news is we made it super easy.
When you receive your Timesulin smart cap it will have a small plastic tab in place, which protects the battery. Activate the battery by removing the plastic protective peg and the timer on your Timesulin cap will start blinking 00:00. Administer your insulin injection and then replace your Timesulin smart cap onto your insulin pen.
Step 2 – Every Time You Put Timesulin on Your Pen the Timer Resets
The smart cap will immediately start counting the seconds, starting at one second (00:01) and counting up to an hour, or 59 minutes and 59 seconds. After an hour, the timer mode will switch from MM:SS to HH:MM and run until 99 hours and 59 minutes. If you have not administered another insulin shot in 100 hours, this is where your Timesulin unit will stop counting. Remember to switch your needle between each injection so no insulin gets inside Timesulin.
Step 3 – Just click the Cap in Place After an Injection – No More Guessing
To reactive your timer, simply remove the cap for longer than 8 seconds and start all over! We have incorporated an 8-second delay in the resetting of your Timesulin smart cap. This will allow you to remove the cap – to check your pen’s insulin levels on the way out to dinner, for example – without resetting the timer.
That is it – you are ready to use Timesulin
Timesulin has no buttons, no instruction manual or anything to learn. Just snap it on your pen and you are ready to live a safer and easier life with diabetes. Lifespan of a Timesulin is 12 months, the screen will start fading and then go blank. We will check up with you during your first months of Timesulin use to make sure you are satisfied and also remind you when it’s time to replace your Timesulin unit.
