Insulin pump in 1960 vs 2021

omnipod patches

In the early 1960s, Dr. Arnold Kadish developed the first insulin pump. Unfortunately, little attention was given to Kadish’s device due to its impracticality for daily use, with its size similar to an army backpack. Anyway, looks impressive, doesn’t it? Now, modern insulin pumps are really like artificial pancreas’ that make the lives of people with diabetes easier. Attached to the body they continuously deliver amounts of rapid or short acting insulin via a catheter placed under the skin. What do you think insulin pumps will look like in the future?
