« PicoSulin »
has far exceeded the stage of concept andideas and certainly is the solution for thousands of patients waiting for an easier handling of their diabetes.
is a truly technology breakthrough offeringnew perspectives for treatment, easy to use in a verysmall and compact size.
PicoSulin paves the way for new therapies by allowingfor the first time the delivery of small nano-boluswhich imitates the natural secretion of insulin by thepancreas; the delivery is also possible in a closed loopsystem with an integrated glucose sensor.
The ideal solution
The solution is to have an ultra small and very light pump using a technology that is capable of infusing the insulin directly from a penfill cartridge without manipulating the insulin and this newpump will have a better precision and a lower cost that a syringe.
The insulin pump should also consider all the conditions for its daily use such as the availability of a battery everywhereat anytime, the resistance to impacts, the sealing, the user friendly, the light weight, the communication with a PC, theconnexion to a glucose sensor and all of this wrapped up in a small device ideally with the same dimensions as a box of matches.It is therefore fairly obvious that putting together all of those elements into a micro medical device requires lots of investments, lab developments, testing by manufacturers and the patience of the patients.
« PicoSulin »
is the result of several years of research and developments in the field of micro liquid delivery. Thesimplicity of the system is based on the use of
plastic micro pump which is connected to an ultra precisemechanical system (patent pending)
capable to deliver a
bolus of 25nl
(0.0025U) that is 20 times more precisethan any other pump on the market which delivers 500nl (0.05U).Moreover, this micro pump uses a principle of
volumetric pump capable to aspirate the insulin directly fromany type or brand of penfill cartridge
. Its major advantages beyond its performances are its very small size and itsmodularity that gives the
« PicoPump »
a portable pump, 50% much smaller than one of the smallest pump on themarket such as the Animas 2020 and a patch, 20% smaller than OmniPod. The
« PicoPatch »
differs from theOmniPod by having only one disposable plastic element which is an environmentally friendly solution.
