People using traditional insulin pumps to manage their diabetes often have to adjust their daily lives to live comfortably with a tubed pump. Insulet wants to change that.
For nearly three decades, hundreds of thousands of people with diabetes have relied on insulin pumps to titrate the drug that keeps their blood sugar in check. Insulin pumps have remained largely unchanged over the years, leaving the device ripe for innovation.
So when Insulet’s founder, John Brooks III, set out to find a better way to deliver insulin to his diabetic son, he looked for technologies that would make his son’s life simpler.
He founded Insulet in 2000 and just five years later hit the market with the first tubeless insulin delivery system.
