Insulin Pump Breakthrough:The Nanopump

Up until now the smallest insulin pumps available have been about the size of a pager. Now, thanks to the new Nanopump created by Debiotech there will be just 25% of that size on the market.

More than just size, the Nanopump allows a tiny pump to be mounted on a disposable skin patch. The Nanopump will allow continuous insulin infusion. Insulin Pump Therapy is becoming one of the most attractive available alternatives to the standard insulin injection. This form of insulin delivery mimics more closely the natural secretion of insulin from the pancreas. Therefor this is a step further along the road of diabetes management.

The Nanopump by Debiotech will utilize Micro-Electro-Mechanical System technology, also referred to as MEMS. This technology basically acts as eyes and arms. MEMS technology would sense what amount of insulin is needed and then react by releasing the insulin. This is a huge breakthrough in the fight to battle diabetes. Think about it, this is basically what the pancreas does right?

Another great feature of the Nanopump by Debiotech is the increased safety it will provide. When at rest the Nanopump has a closed fluid rest and an anti-free flow system. Along with having all of the standard safety features included on current insulin pumps, the Nanopump is able to detect occlusion and air bubbles substantially quicker than other pumps.

I know, you are thinking that the Nanopump by Debiotech must cost a fortune right? Wrong. Unlike traditional insulin pumps there is no substantial upfront cost with the Nanopump. This is thanks to the Nanopump’s design. The electronics are contained in a permanent part while the reservoir and pumping mechanism are contained in a disposable part. This design makes the Nanopump affordable for every patient.
