The small blood sugar sensor can be worn on the abdomen, arm or leg. The wireless sensor monitors the blood sugar level every 5 minutes and sends a report to an accompanying smartphone app.
An algorithm in the smartphone app then analyzes the received data. If the patient needs insulin, the app will send a signal to the wearable insulin pump, which can be hooked on the patient's clothes.
The discreet device injects insulin into the blood through very fine needles. The system provides a very inconspicuous way of administering insulin without the need for syringes.
"If it is working, you do not know that it is there," said Francis Doyle III, Harvard's Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences dean. Doyle and Kovatchev collaborated on the development of the new "closed-loop" system.
In a conventional insulin administration, knowing just how much insulin is needed is tricky. Kovatchev's original algorithm is similar with traditional diabetes management strategies in that it aims to maintain the blood glucose level at a precise target number. Using the algorithm in an automatic system means the app needs to change levels many times depending on the data sent by the sensor.
