(The Gist of Science Reporter) Smart insulin-delivery Patch


Smart insulin-delivery Patch

  • Researchers from the University of California Los Angeles, University of North Carolina, and MIT have designed a smart insulin delivery wearable patch which could automatically regulate and monitor glucose level in diabetics by delivering the required insulin dose.
  • The stick-on device is about the size of a U.S. quarter coin and has tiny needles preloaded with insulin, which are less than a millimetre in length and made out of a polymer that’s sensitive to glucose.
  • The technology is cheap to manufacture and one day people with diabetes will hopefully be able to put on one of these patches in the morning without worrying about the glucose levels throughout the day.
