Team TSG congratulates De Montfort University on their British Inventor of the Year win!

The Gadget Show Live was full of events this year. Most important of which was the British Inventor of the Year Award, won by De Montfort Uni!

Their artificial pancreas design, created in partnership with the Renfrew Group, will mean diabetics would no longer need to inject insulin to manage their condition.

 

The device, fitted inside the body, delivers precise amounts of insulin directly into the blood stream.

As the device requires no electronics, the risk of rejection by the body is minimised.

Their work will save lives – congratulations guys!
