Objectives: The aim of the study was to evaluate durable insulin pens among people with diabetes (PwD) and healthcare professionals (HCPs), by comparing two durable insulin pens with memory function: NovoPen (R) 5 (NP5) and HumaPen (R) Memoir (TM) (HPM), and two durable insulin pens without memory function: HumaPen Luxura (R) (HPL) and ClikSTAR (R) (CS).
Research design and methods: This cross-over, multicentre usability test was conducted in China, Germany and the UK. Participants evaluated all four pens in randomised order by performing handling and usability tasks related to everyday use during a face-to-face interview. Tasks, pens and preferences were rated by completing a questionnaire comprising of rating and open-ended questions.
Results: NP5 was preferred by 51% of participants compared with HPM (22%, p < 0.01), HPL (12%, p < 0.01) and CS (15%, p < 0.01). Participants preferred the design of NP5 (in particular, appearance, length and robustness). Memory function for the two pens was rated equally by participants, but 54% of PwD rated NP5 as ′very easy′ to learn to use versus 22% for HPM and significantly more HCPs found it ′very easy′ to teach patients to use NP5 versus HPM (6-point rating scale; difference in mean score, p < 0.01). Substantially, more PwD would be confident in using NP5 (64%) compared with HPM (43%), HPL (49%) and CS (45%) (6-point rating scale; difference in mean score, p < 0.01).
Conclusions: NP5 was preferred by > 50% of PwD and HCPs. NP5 was more highly rated for design, memory function and ease of learning/teaching compared with HPM. Most PwD would be confident in using NP5 for administering daily insulin injections.
