The low profile Cymbal array for enhanced insulin transport through in vivo animal skin using rabbits was discussed. Through the use of the cymbal array, the US-insulin experimental group showed a blood glucose level decrease of -208.1 ± 29 mg/dL within 90 minutes. The small increase in blood glucose was attributable to the low skin permeability of insulin. It was shown that the US alone did not alter the blood glucose level of the rabbit.
