I just came across this press release that came from Insulet (the guys behind the Omnipod system) about the success of a study using a closed-loop algorithm.
From the press release:
The study demonstrated that the Omnipod automated glucose control algorithm performed well, was safe during the day and night for adults with type 1 diabetes, and was very effective at night with minimal hypoglycemia and excellent fasting glucose.
With the Medtronic announcement and then Omnipod’s study I’ve been getting more and more excited by the idea of a closed loop. This has been a technology that I thought was a bit too distant to get excited by previously. Does closed-loop tech excite you? Why or why not?
