Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate that Finesse, for prandial insulin bolusing when used in conjunction with basal insulin, achieves equivalent glycemic control when compared to multiple daily injections and to evaluate its preference.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Mellitus Device: Finesse Device: Pen/Syringe (Usual injection device) Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The aim of this feasibility study is to compare efficacy, device satisfaction and quality of life (QOL) in people with type 1 or 2 diabetes delivering mealtime insulin using a novel insulin bolus-patch (Finesse™; Calibra Medical, Inc., Redwood City, CA) versus current devices that deliver bolus insulin (pen/syringe). All subjects injected their basal insulin using their current pen/syringe.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Finesse
Finesse Insulin Delivery Patch
Device: Finesse
Finesse Insulin Delivery Patch
Other Name: Insulin Bolus Patch

Active Comparator: Usual injection device
Pen/Syringe
Device: Pen/Syringe (Usual injection device)
Pen/Syringe
Other Names:
  • Insulin pen
  • Insulin syringe
  • Insulin injection device




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Daily Blood Glucose [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Equivalence of Finesse to Usual Injection Device in Mean Daily Blood Glucose


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Glucose Profiles Per Day [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Standard deviation of 7 daily blood glucose values (3 pre-meal, 3 post-meal, and bedtime) for 3 days

  2. Insulin Delivery System Rating [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Subject satisfaction with insulin delivery was assessed by self-report on the validated Insulin Delivery System Rating Questionnaire. Scale is 0-100. Higher score is better.

  3. Self-reported Hypoglycemic Episodes [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Severe hypoglycemia is defined as episodes in which the patient experienced coma, seizure, or suspected seizure or impairment sufficient to require the assistance of another person and either the blood glucose level is measured and found to be <50 mg/dl or the clinical manifestations were reversed by oral carbohydrate, subcutaneous glucagon, or intravenous glucose.
