Insulin pumps have come a long way in a few short years, all the way down to a pager-sized device diabetes patients can wear on a belt and keep out of sight for the most part, but Debiotech isn't content to stop there, and has teamed up with STMicroelectronics to bring a miniaturized insulin pump to market. The Nanopump is a disposable insulin pump, based on microfluidic MEMS tech (picture after the break), and is small enough to be worn as a nearly invisible patch on the skin, about 1/4 the size of existing pumps. The new partnership with ST brings this pump closer to the market, thanks to ST's silicon-based microfluidic manufacturing chops, and hopefully we should be seeing these not too long after the device clears regulatory hurdles, sans creepy butterfly.
