Thank you TuDiabetes Community! Your input contributed to Pancreum's product design! Pancreum has just won the 2011 DiabetesMine Design Challenge!

Over the last couple of years I've participated in several blogs about the Insulet OmniPod System, the Medtronic Guardian RT CGMS and general insulin pump & CGMS technology.

During this time, while blogging, I received a lot of feedback about these devices and their technology. You expressed your wishes for features and your concerns about the shortcomings of such devices.

I would like to thank the whole TuDiabetes community for giving me this much needed feedback and for questioning some of my ideas and opinions.

I'm sure you'd be happy to know that some of those suggestions you made were very useful and influenced Pancreum's product design requirements.

Thank you for being part of this contest victory. We will now have a better chance of getting funded, while presenting our prototypes and business plan to the venture capital firms.

I'm also looking forward to continue answering your questions about diabetes management medical device technology in general here at TuDiabetes.

Sincerely,
Gil
