A new diabetic life style …Thanks to highly sophisticated MEMS technology (micro electro-mechanicalsystems), the JewelPUMP combines all features and benefits diabetes patientswere looking for:
smallest patch pump ever conceived
highest content of insulin available
longest use on single fill
precision at nanoliter level
no air bubble nuisance
occlusion detetction without delay
flexibility to attach and detach a twill
fully waterproof 
Bluetooth remote communication and programming
more environmentally friendly
more cost effective
Based on MEMS technology, the
offersunmet improvement in diabetes therapy. It was designed withthe help and assistance of diabetic patients, nurses andendocrinologists with the objective of bringing a significantcontribution to patient’s Quality of Life. Conceived as apatch pump without tubing, it gives more
andfreedom to the patient. Its
extremely small size and weight
 allows wearing it completely hidden under the clothes, its
permits an accurate delivery of insulin evenat very low delivery rates and independently of externalconditions, its built-in
functional monitoring
during its use and its general conception makesit more
for patients.The
is made of two parts: one re-usable part(that contains the electronics, vibration alarm, buzzer, as well as remote communication fordistant programming and control) and one disposable part (with the reservoir and the pumpingmechanism, as well as batteries).Reservoir filling is done only once for 6 days and air bubblesdon’t need to be evacuated as they are retained in thereservoir by a new type of filter. Once both parts areassembled together, the entirely waterproof unit is attached to the skin with an adhesive patchthat contains an auto-inserted infusion cannula with no tubing which can be changed every 3days. The unit can be removed and reattached at will to the existing adhesive patch, or to anew one at another location, enabling more freedom forthe patient.With its small size (approx. 67 × 41 × 12.7 mm) andlight weight 1.1 oz (31g), the
can behidden under the clothes and makes the disease almostinvisible. It is up to four times smaller than today’spumps, while containing uptwice the amount of insulin,and therefore represents aclear progress in patients’daily life.
