Lublin: Automatic Insulin Injection System (AIIS)

MAKERS: Muhammad Mahsheed Ali COUNTRY: Pakistan

We present Pakistan?s first Automatic Insulin Injection System, Lublin, with smaller size, lighter weight and lower cost to change the lives of 20 million diabetic people in Asian countries

The Purpose

We are developing an Automatic Insulin Injection System (AIIS) for community living with type-1 diabetes - a condition when pancreas fails to produce insulin-. Our AIIS would be light weight, low cost design, for developing decountries of Asia as an alternative to cost effective but less precise and uncomfortable multiple daily syringe injections (MDI) of insulin (hormone that helps in glucose digestion). Although, AIIS is available in the market, but is too expensive for any developing nation, like Pakistan. So, our task is to present a novel design to ensure its availability and affordability in developing countries.

Additional Details

? It will impact 3.8 million type-1 in 38 million diabetic people alone in Pakistan ? Our solution mitigates weaknesses of state of the art solutions for example wearable pump presented by Lublin has long life with light weight and small size design that state of the art -Medtronic Minimed insulin pump- is unable to provide ? Moreover, insulin delivery system of Lublin would be controlled by hand-held device to improve user experience without disposability of the pump as compared to Insulet Omni-pod ? Tubing is removed from our design to reduce recurring costs with increased portability and ease of usage
