Devina Kothari’s innovative solution for insulin delivery easily integrates into the user’s lifestyle with fashion-inspired wearable tech they can set and forget!
The device has two main components: one is the monitoring system and the other is a diffusing system. The entire system is closed looped. “Closed loop systems provide feedback of the actual current state and compare it to the desired state in order to adjust the system,”. Not only automated, the process is also made pain-free by use of a micro-needle array where the diameter is smaller than that of a mosquito’s probe! Additionally, integrated bio-sensors detect any unusual fluctuation in the patient’s glucose levels, pulse rate and other metrics and will automatically notify the appropriate party in the event of an emergency.
The design has won her the Red Dot Award by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, Essen, Germany. The design rights lie with a drug manufacturing company, Sanofi.
