Receiving the M-PED Commercialization Gap Funding award has allowed me to create molds and fabricate prototypes of the DentalFoos Disposable Isolators for product testing. This is a crucial step for DentalFoos on the road to small-scale manufacturing and production.

"Not all diabetic patients want or require a continuous insulin delivery
system, however. In lieu of regular injections, many turn to injector
pens, which are much easier for patients to manage than a regular
injection because of measured dosage and simplified, less painful
delivery. Cambridge Consultants has leveraged smart technology to create
KiCoPen, an injector pen that should vastly improve diabetes management
with a number of helpful features. “The device captures the exact insulin dose delivered and wirelessly
transmits the information to an associated smartphone app,” said Bo
Petersson, head of diabetes care at Cambridge Consultants. “The
associated app seamlessly gathers data on blood glucose levels,
activity, and food consumption, and integrates it with insulin dosage.
Local and cloud-based analytics turn the data into real-time actionable
insights—helping the patient stay in control.”"
