Pancreum Mine System

PDA, CoreMD, BetaWedge and GlucoWedge


The Pancreum Mine closed-loop system can manage and regulate the glucose level with limited (or without) input from the user. The system has four components: The PDA (Personal Diabetes Analyzer), the CoreMD, the GlucoWedge continuous glucose monitor and the BetaWedge insulin pump. In addition, an intelligent algorithm that resides in the PDA provides safe and reliable adjustments to the insulin delivery.

The CoreMD and GlucoWedge accurately check the glucose level every 4 minutes, 24 hours a day. The GlucoWedge measures the glucose in the interstitial fluid and the CoreMD passes the information to the PDA via a Bluetooth wireless link. The PDA uses its leading-edge algorithm to calculate a new basal and/or bolus insulin delivery requirement. It then sends commands back to the CoreMD, which adjusts the BetaWedge's delivery rate. This algorithm adapts to the individual's metabolic needs. Each person's unique insulin needs change according to activity, stress, and hormone levels. A set of parameters entered by the user guarantees the system's accuracy.
