i-Pump, our ready to go micro miniature pump product was first developed by Marco Christoforou. He was motivated when his daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 8. All the details can be found at www.ipump.org.uk.
i-Pump was later developed further for a project requiring a pump for implanting in order to drive interstitial fluid through a sack containing insulin producing islets. The result is the pump described on this website. We now have a pump that is ready to go, with the convenience of bluetooth control from an Android application and wireless charging in a number of compact form factors.
We are looking for funding to develop a peristaltic version.Tweet
