About CeQur Simplicity
The CeQur Simplicity wearable insulin patch is designed for single use only, and cannot be reused due to an increased risk of infection, malfunctions, and/or incorrect insulin delivery. It’s not possible to refill an empty insulin reservoir in the patch.
Insulin is provided separately. You will fill the patch with up to 200 units of rapid-acting insulin using a fill syringe that is provided in your Patient Starter Kit. Sign up to learn more about CeQur Simplicity today.

If the buttons are locked in the “squeezed in” position and no click is heard, this is an indication that the patch has run out of insulin or that the cannula is blocked.
The patch should not be pre-filled. It should remain in its unopened package until you’re ready to fill it and wear it.
If this is the first time you will be using the wearable patch, seek training from your healthcare provider before the first use. Do not use CeQur Simplicity until you have been trained on its proper use. Most patients need less than 30 minutes of training and are fully comfortable using the patch after 1-3 applications.
