D Medical Industries subsidiary Spring-Set Health Solutions has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its Spring Universal Infusion Sets in the US.
The Spring Universal is a semi-disposable insulin pump that continuously infuses insulin into a patient’s body, using its proprietary spring-based delivery technology and is cost-effective compared to motor and gear train mechanisms.
At its core is the proprietary detach-detect mechanism, which triggers a blocking mechanism that creates an occlusion when the base of the infusion set detaches from the user’s body.
This further evokes an occlusion alarm in the insulin pump enabling continuously controlled and monitored insulin delivery, providing additional safety.
The Spring Universal Infusion Set also reduces pain and discomfort, and offers enhanced insertion stability.
