Sheldon Duncombe - INSUSUIT
Stage of Development: Idea
INSUSUIT intends on being the next major breakthrough in the treatment of diabetes, the first since the discovery of insulin in 1921. INSUSUIT is a Type 1 diabetes correction device which makes use of a glucose sensor attached to the individual which gives a reading every 15 minutes via a monitoring device. The device stores all readings in addition to providing corrective action if required. The suit is light weight and virtually invisible. It is designed to make type 1 diabetics feel normal. The way they should feel!
