D. Medical of Tirat Carmel, Israel received FDA approval to bring to the U.S. market its Spring Universal Infusion Set for insulin delivery. The system features an auto retractable needle and Detach-Detect mechanism that will signal the insulin pump when the connection to the body is broken.
From the product page:
One of the smallest in class, the Spring Universal all-in-one inserter eliminates assembly hassle, while offering one-handed activation with the push of a button.
Never see or handle the needle – it is hidden at all times. This feature eliminates possibility of accidental pricking and exposure to bio hazard.
The high-gauge, auto-retractable needle is lightning-fast, offering one of the least painful insertion experiences.
The unique Detach-Disconnect detection mechanism is integrated into the base of the infusion set, creating an occlusion in the event of set detachment, immediately sounding the pump alarm thus preventing extended insulin-delivery disruption.
The best-in-class 360° rotation of the tubing connector allows for easy temporary disconnection, or on-site rotation for placement adjustment. Plus the luer-lock connection allows you to enjoy the benefits of the Spring Universal Infusion Set with your favorite insulin pump.
