DUKADA Trio consists of two parts
The Top Cap
(which activates the timer)
The Main Cap
(which includes the features)
The Top Cap is in place and the timer is activated
Keep in mind that The Top Cap has to be removed from the Main Cap for at least 10 seconds before it will count as an injection.
For example: if you have not taken insulin up to 9 hours ago:
This is indicated by a total of 9 diode flash by the same 4 LEDs (2 intervals of the 4 LEDs followed by 1 LED).
15 hours: 15 diode flash by the 4 LEDs (3 intervals of 4 LED + 1 interval of 3 LEDs).
24 hours: 24 diode flash by the 4 LEDs (6 intervals of 4 LED).
More than 24 hours: 3-second lightwave.
>A flash by the outer LED will confirm each new time counting (no need to press the button to check that the timer has started).
DUKADA Trio takes into account that the user might remove the Top Cap for 10 seconds or more without taking insulin. In that case the user can keep the ongoing time counting by pressing the button for 1.5 seconds until the outer LED flashes before mounting the Top Cap.
9 hours: first 4 LEDs, then 4 LEDs and finally 1 LED
Take insulin in the dark with the Needle Light:
1. Remove the Top Cap to take the insulin.
2. Push the grey button:
>The Needle Light is on for 20 seconds.
>The light fades off automatically after 20 seconds or if you put the Top Cap back on the Main Cap before 20 seconds have elapsed.
The Needle light is on the Main Cap, close to the needle.
Using DUKADA Trio with the Flex Grip unfolded:
1. Remove the Top Cap and keep the Grip in its position.
2. Hold the Insulin Pen just as usual.
You will experience a firmer grip on the Insulin Pen as a result of the extra dimension that the Grip provides to the Main Cap.
Using DUKADA Trio with the Grip folded out:
1. Remove the Top Cap
2. Fold out the Grip
3. Place the forefinger of the hand that does not hold the Insulin Pen under the Grip and the middle finger above the Grip
4. Then hold the pen as normal with the other hand.
Now, the fingers placed in the Grip can follow and support the Insulin Pen during the injection, providing increased control and stability.
Battery life time is estimated to be 6 – 8 months. You can replace the battery by simply removing the grey part on the Main Cap.
The estimated battery life is based on the use of a “high drain” button cell battery, 1.55V with 82 mAh and the following average usage:
- 5 display of time per day
- 3 use of needle light per day
The 4 diodes flash in pairs 4 times after display of time result or Needle Light.
Critical low battery:
The 4 diodes flash and disconnects the selected feature.
After battery switch, no new time counting will be initiated when Top Cap is mounted the first time (unless you have asked for injection light). The outer LED briefly flashes if you ask for time indication in this situation.
