The conceptual 'Kite' insulin port has been designed by Mitul Lad and Cambridge Consultants as a solution for diabetes management that replaces traditional injections.
The pump works by being attached to the abdomen of the user and eliminating the need for constant injections by providing a fine-tuned insulin dose when required. The device will then relay information to a connected smartphone to let users easily manage all of the essential data collected via the accompanying app. This includes blood sugar levels, activity, carbohydrate intake and much more. The discreet design of the pump allows it to stay connected at all times for quick dosing or data management from anywhere.
The conceptual 'Kite' insulin port comes as one of a growing number of connected healthcare solutions as designers and professionals alike seek to streamline the experience for those with chronic conditions.
