V-Go is indicated for adult patients requiring insulin (types 1 and 2), but designed for patients with type 2 diabetes. Unlike other insulin delivery devices, V-Go delivers bolus insulin with button presses, not electronics. Each disposable device is worn like a patch for 24 hours, after which time users attach a new V-Go. It delivers a pre-set basal rate and on-demand bolus insulin via a stainless-steel needle (no tubing). Available in three different models:
- V-Go 20: 56 units total (20 units basal over 24 hours; up to 36 units bolus in 2-unit increments)
- V-Go 30: 66 units total (30 units basal over 24 hours; up to 36 units bolus in 2-unit increments)
- V-Go 40: 76 units total (40 units basal over 24 hours; up to 36 units bolus in 2-unit increments)
- No Tubing
