Cellnovo announces the CE marking of the first Bluetooth and
AndroidTM-enabled micro-pump for insulin delivery
Adoption of best-in-class wireless communication technology and standard mobile operating system opens door to interoperability with other connected devices
Paris, France, December 13, 2017 - Cellnovo Group ("Cellnovo" or the "Company" - CLNV: EN Paris), a medical technology company marketing the first mobile, connected, all-in-one diabetes management system, today announces the achievement of an industry-first, with the CE marking of its next-generation mobile diabetes management system, making it the first insulin delivery platform to use Bluetooth Low Energy and AndroidTM. The use of a best-in-class wireless communication technology and a standard mobile operating system will further enable interoperability with other e-health platforms, including artificial pancreas projects.
This industry-first adds to the Cellnovo System's unique value proposition as the first and only e-connected micro-pump, which provides real time data to patients and clinicians.
The Company's next-generation system, the Cellnovo System with AndroidTM, builds upon the current system in three main aspects:
The adoption of standard technologies will facilitate the interoperability of the Cellnovo System with other connected objects for health and well-being. The next-generation system will thus be capable of communicating with devices such as continuous glucose meters, blood glucose meters, fitness trackers, and smart watches, providing a holistic vision of the patient's health. These innovations provide Cellnovo with a best-in-class platform to be used for the Company's future artificial pancreas and automated insulin delivery (AID) product lines.
The Cellnovo micro-pump will communicate wirelessly with the touchscreen handset using Bluetooth Low Energy, a standard communication technology dedicated to connected objects. This technology guarantees the quality of communications while significantly reducing energy consumption.
The use of the AndroidTM operating system improves the performance of Cellnovo's proprietary touchscreen handset.
Sophie Baratte, Chief Executive Officer of Cellnovo, comments: "We are pleased to announce the CE marking of our next generation mobile diabetes management system. With this next generation system, Cellnovo is now ready for the future of healthcare. Connected devices are a gateway to personalised health management and allow Cellnovo to acquire a platform adapted to future artificial pancreas products. This achievement marks an important milestone in our mission to empower patients and enable them to have greater self-management of chronic diseases like diabetes.
Javaid Masoud, Chief Technology Officer of Cellnovo, comments: "We are proud of this important milestone in Cellnovo's R&D roadmap. Today, we are seeing a rapid convergence of medical devices with lifestyle products such as connected watches and activity trackers. As the first to adopt Bluetooth
