The Cellnovo vision is that those who rely on medical devices should benefit from the same advances in technology to improve the care they receive and to make their lives easier.

The life today of a typical Type 1 diabetes patient is a relentless daily routine of testing, tracking, calculating and journal keeping. Our vision is that through elegant design and the thoughtful integration of everyday technology into medical systems, Cellnovo can restore ease of life by providing freedom from the cumbersome, burdensome and obstructive procedures of traditional diabetes management.

The Cellnovo System is the world’s first mobile diabetes management system, including an insulin patch pump, activity monitor, cellular-enabled wireless touchscreen handset with integrated blood glucose meter and automatic connectivity to secure servers.

“The journal keeping conception is a powerful way to track your health over a period which can also help in looking into other factors in our lives that can contribute to levels dropping and changing”

“It removes the traditional treatment of diabetes making it easier for the patient”
