Closed-loop insulin delivery
Diabeloop has developed an integrated closed-loop insulin delivery system that consists of three components: a continuous glucose monitor, a patch insulin pump and a handset resembling a cell phone that predicts blood sugar levels and instructs the pump to automatically deliver insulin doses. A blood sugar measurement is sent via Bluetooth to the handset every five minutes. The reading is analyzed in real-time and insulin is administered based on the person’s physiology, history and data entries on meals and exercise. The product is currently undergoing FDA review.
