Hi,was reading my insurance coverage for diabetes products & saw that I was allowed a Medi-Jector Vision .Looked up on it & that's what I found.
Instead of a needle, the Medi-Jector VISION? uses pressure to create a micro-thin stream of insulin that penetrates the skin in a fraction of a second and is dispersed into subcutaneous tissue. It happens by simply pressing a button - by the time you feel it penetrating your skin, it's already over

Hi Ricky :), I hope that you are feeling pretty Good.

You know, I looked all over the net and I can't seem to find any "People" talking about the Medi injector which is odd. I see the companies and stores.

You don't hear much about the injector.

I recall, when the first ones came out that I thought I would want one when I could afford one(that was long ago). I also recall hearing that they burned and damaged the skin. Don't forget, those were the first ones invented. They must have resolved those problems. I'll keep looking. I'd be interested in hearing what actual Patients say about them.

Meanwhile, if your Insurance will cover it and the accessories then perhaps getting one would be a Good idea. It doesn't seem complicated and it's made so it can be used easily. You can't go wrong there. If you decide it is not for you then tell your Dr., Insurance, etc. It shouldn't be a problem. I wonder if they have trial-testers. That would be even better. Please tell us if you get one and what you think about it. I'm curious. :D

Insulin injector

Hi Ricky and all,

Did you ever get an answer?

I've been using two different brands for years.

Medi-Jector Vision

I have used the Medi-Jector Visions for almost 20 years and love them. I had a huge fear of needles and finally found this system. The pluses: no needles, no worry about disposal of syringes, I got 6 - 8 years of use from each one (on my 3rd) which made it cheaper than syringes, just one step that injects the insulin (not push a needle in then push the insulin in), and I was able to decrease the insulin amount due to better dispersal under the skin. It eliminated the possibility of being accused of being a drug addict (yes, it has happened to me with carrying syringes). The minuses are: you have to purchase insulin bottle tops and tops to the injector, compared to newer thinner needles - it can be more immediately painful for a second or two, sometimes you have to make sure the insulin actually gets into the reservoir, and sometimes all of the insulin doesn't get injected (if you hit muscle or tough skin). Various insurance plans I have had would not cover it so be sure. Despite the negatives, I love this thing! The problem now is that, although the tops are still sold, I cannot find where to buy the injector itself anymore. I am still trying as I need a new one soon and will be lost without one.

Medi-Jector

I have been using the Medi-Jector for more than 10 years now, I’m on the second Jector, if you don’t like needle, this is the way to go.

With the new needles being 32 or 33 gauge, I don't think the needle is an issue anymore. The first time I used my Lantus Solostar Pen with a novofine needle, I thought that it didn't work. Never felt a thing.
