Utrecht, The Netherlands-based ViCentra designed the system to deliver insulin through its Kaleido insulin pump. The Diabeloop DBLG1 algorithm receives input from Dexcom’s G6 continuous glucose monitor. Together, they form an artificial pancreas offering flexible self learning with increased ease of use.
This isn’t the first automated insulin delivery system using Dexcom or Diabeloop technology. Dexcom’s, for instance, integrates into the Insulet and Tandem Diabetes Care insulin delivery systems. Diabeloop provided its algorithm for pumps from EOFlow (soon to be part of Medtronic) and SOOIL. More than 10,000 people in Europe already use the DBLG1 algorithm.
