New technology may revolutionize insulin pumps

Today I bumped into the website of a company from Israel that is working with some incredible technology for insulin pumps.

NiliMEDIX seem to have created the first insulin pump without a motor. This will, in theory, help eliminate a lot of the risks and malfunctions inherent to using a pump in the first place, and may also make pumps cheaper.

Here is a video from the company describing the product:

The company is also working on a patch pump to compete with Omnipod and a disposable insulin pump, likely aimed a type 2 diabetics.

    Wow, no calibration on the CGM! Nice! And the combo pump/CGM – awesome!

    Funny, I’m bringing in some kids pump cases from Israel. Should be here in this month sometime.
