Grenoble-based startup Diabeloop won the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) InnovEIT award in October for its D4Kids project to develop an automated diabetes-management system for children suffering from type 1 diabetes. The future system will improve patients’ quality of life and reduce the occurrence of hypo- and hyperglycemia. The system’s graphical user interface was designed to ensure that children can easily understand the data.
The company recently completed three clinical trials at pediatric medical centers in Belgium and France, including Necker Medical Center in Paris. In other news, Diabeloop is waiting for France’s healthcare authority to approve the DBLG1 System for adults for coverage under the national healthcare insurance system.
