Moving the Needle on Insulin Delivery
Imagine a wristwatch that pulses insulin through the skin without a needle pricking the skin. “No pain. No site changes. Less consumables,” says engineer Nitin Saluja, PhD, co-inventor of this proposed insulin delivery system. It would work like an electronic pancreas, communicating via Bluetooth to a continuous glucose monitor. A sensor, used separately, would track...

In the 90s, researchers had...
