What we have here is the first insulin pump. It was developed by Dr. Arnold Kadish in 1963. Every account I’ve read of it describes it as “the size of a marine’s backpack.” These days insulin pumps are the size of a pack of cards.
The insulin pump was considered experimental upon its introduction. It was seen as a more viable option in the 70s, but it didn’t become a popular option for managing diabetes until the 90s.
And that’s our little bit of history for the day!
It's good etiquette to share what you like!
