The iLet bionic pancreas was recently revealed at Friends For Life. Here is a video of Ed Damiano giving a TED talk about the bionic pancreas. He gives a quick history of the treatment of diabetes and why the treatment can actually be deadly. (But please don’t let the thought of “dead in bed” consume you!)
The iLet is a dual chamber bionic pancreas, meaning it has both insulin and glucagon chambers.
Ed wants his son to have it before he goes to college…I want Q to have it before she goes to college!
