4 Medical Technologies That May Save Your Life

Insulin Patches


Insulin patches could revolutionize the way that diabetes is treated. Insulin patches fit discretely on the stomach and continuously monitor blood sugar. When blood sugar is low, the device is able to dispense a small amount of insulin to keep blood sugar levels balanced. The device can save diabetics the hassles of checking sugar by pricking their fingers and delivering insulin injections using a syringe, but they can also help to better monitor blood sugar regulation over the long term.
