Autopen 2 Unit Series II multidose insulin injection pen manufactured by Owen Mumford Ltd., Oxfordshire, England, 1985. Incomplete - needle missing.
The ‘Autopen’ (shown on the left) is a handheld device used by people with diabetes to inject insulin into the body. Diabetes is a condition where the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin to break down sugars in the body to pass on to the cells and release energy. The injected dose can be varied easily. The pen is a discreet way to administer insulin and is easy to use. Made by Owen Mumford Ltd, the Autopen can be bought from medical suppliers and is available on prescription. It is shown here with a similar device (1993-1451).
