Micro Insulin Pump / Insulin Pump

Micro Insulin Pump
Micro Insulin Pump

An inconspicuous, flexibly wearable, user-friendly, jewelry-like insulin pump which gives the patients a part of their independence back and is smaller than every existing pump.

There is a growing number of people who are afflicted with diabetes. Although current insulin pumps are great inventions and a huge simplification for patients, there are still people who do not want to replace the injection with a pen.
