Insulin pumps are portable medical devices that are utilized to administer insulin in type 1 or type 2 diabetic patients’ body. They mimic the function of pancreas and aid in managing the sugar levels in the body. These pumps resemble a smartphone in terms of size and are worn outside the body.

These pumps usually consist of built-in bolus calculators that estimate the dosage of insulin required by the user based on the patient’s glucose levels.
