iLet : Bionic Pancreas to improve the lives of people with type 1 diabetes - GeeksNewsLab [cached]

iLet Bionic Pancreas - Beta Bionics, a startup created by Boston University biomedical engineer Ed Damiano, hit the benchmark Wednesday night after 775 members of the public put up an average of $1,300 each to back its idea for a new kind of pacemaker for diabetics.

To build a technology that will automatically manage our children's diabetes, day and night, and keep them safe from the far-reaching harms, the immediate dangers, the emotional burden, and the fear that type 1 diabetes carries with it every day of their lives. That technology will provide a bridge that spans the divide between where we are today and the biological cure of tomorrow - a cure that has been ever present in our dreams, and ever elusive from our lives.
iLet bionic pancreas Bioengineer Edward Damiano developed an "artificial pancreas" after his son, David, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
The artificial pancreas technology was developed by Damiano, whose teenage son has type 1 diabetes and has to inject himself with insulin or risk going into a diabetic coma.

Whilst many parents have to do their best to help their children manage their insulin doses, Ed Damiano is Associate Professor, in Biomedical Engineering at Boston University and used his engineering expertise together with his keen knowledge of his son's type 1 diabetes to develop a novel 'bionic pancreas'.

Damiano and his accompanying research team have completed initial tests of the bionic pancreas.
However, Ed Damiano is committed to carrying out further research to get the bionic pancreas ready before his son, who is now 15 years old, goes off to college.

For the past 14 years, Dr. Ed Damiano, a Boston University engineering professor, has been working on the iLet, a compact artificial pancreas system by Beta Bionics now in its third generation of design after three years of investigational human trials. Recently, Dr. Damiano spoke with Insulin Nation via telephone about the progress being made to bring the device to market.

Dr. Damiano believes the iLet is now nearly poised to commence FDA clinical trialing.
Dr. Damiano expects that additional pediatric trials will be needed, as well.
Dr. Damiano believes that Beta Bionics is the first medical device company to operate as a benefit corporation and to seek crowdsource funding.
Ed Damiano, Aaron Kowalski, and others discuss how soon we are to having an artificial pancreas on the market.

Ed, who now works as an associate professor in the Biomedical Engineering department at Boston University, had a background in applied math and mechanics, but little experience in the field of medicine when David was first diagnosed.

But as David grew older, Ed began to put an idea together that could drastically improve not only David's life, but the lives of Type 1 diabetes sufferers everywhere.
So Ed designed a bionic pancreas that produces both insulin (which lowers your blood sugar) and glucagon (which raises your blood sugar).
said Ed Damiano.
Check out the video below to meet Ed and David and learn more about how the bionic pancreas works:
