Summary:
Researchers at Iowa State University have developed a feedforward control system for Type 1 Diabetes management. Feedforward control systems, while requiring a more exhaustive model to be properly implemented, can provide better control than typical feedback systems. Moreover, the technology involves non-invasive techniques to manage insulin levels in the body, in contrast to feedback control systems which would require continuous monitoring of blood glucose concentration.

Development Stage:
Description:
The technology aims to develop a feedforward control mechanism for Type 1 Diabetes treatment that utilizes a proprietary sensor approach for predicting blood glucose concentration using noninvasive inputs. The system is trained for each individual; the patient is monitored for a period of several weeks after which automatically collected data is analyzed and parameters are input into the model.

Advantage:
• Feedforward control system anticipates changes in blood glucose
• Non-invasive monitoring
• Highly customizable for each individual patent
• Tighter control parameters than attainable with traditional monitoring

Application:
Blood glucose management
