He will discuss how his work used technology to allow lorry drivers starting insulin to keep their licenses, and how his research testing the earliest systems allowed instant delivery without human intervention.
This innovative work on instant delivery has now culminated in widespread access to continuous glucose monitoring with systems that provide alarms to alert the patient if their blood sugar is too high and low. These systems also provide access to artificial pancreas systems that have revolutionised life with type 1 diabetes.
This technology has revolutionised the way medical professionals interact with their patients. The ability to support individuals through remote monitoring and video calling now allows patients to access healthcare professionals ever easier and more effectively.
