Swiss med-tech company Ypsomed (SWX:YPSN) launched its portable, light-weight insulin pump with seals designed by Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. The pump, mylife YpsoPump, was introduced into the European market today.
Insulin pumps, which continually transport insulin into patients, must have a very precise dosing mechanism. To facilitate a reliable measurement within the pump, there must be as little friction as possible among all the pump drive’s components. However, there must be enough of a seal between components that the device is protected from particles of dirt or water.
