For a diabetes mellitus patient, tight control of glucose level is essential. Results are reported of an investigation of the suitability of existing wearable continuous insulin infusors controlled and adjusted by a control algorithm using continuous glucose measurements as input to perform the functionality of an artificial pancreas. Special attention was(More)
Biomedical engineering research efforts have accomplished another level of a ldquotechnological solutionrdquo for diabetes: an artificial pancreas to be used by patients and supervised by healthcare professionals at any time and place. Reliability of continuous glucose monitoring, availability of real-time programmable insulin pumps, and validation of safe(More)
Design, set-up and test of miniaturized amperometric cells are described. These sensors are produced using silicon micromachining technologies to minimise geometrical sensor dimensions and chemical conversion rate for measurements in small sample volumes. The sensors use conventional reactions of glucose- or lactate-oxidase with amperometric detection of(More)
A syringe infusion pump infuses fluids, medication or nutrients to the circulatory system of the patient. It is generally used intravenously. Syringe infusion pumps can administer fluids in ways that would be impractically expensive or unreliable if performed manually by nursing staff. Advanced versions of these are used in medical applications such as(More)
