KALEIDO UK LAUNCH IN ON THE ACT

FEET FIRST

At the end of April ViCentra announced

the UK launch of its Kaleido insulin pump

system, which it says is the smallest,

lightest and most flexible pump of its kind,

combining the freedom of a patch pump

with the versatility of a conventional pump.

It uses micro-pulse technology to deliver

accurate, consistent and reliable dosing

of insulin. The size of the pump and the

availability of two different tubing lengths

mean it can be worn anywhere on the

body or, if preferred, use the longer length

and keep the pump in a pocket.

The company also says that Kaleido

appeals to pump-eligible people who

consider the existing options too bulky,

too complicated or too restrictive. Alex

Evans, UK Country Manager for ViCentra

has stated, "Our vision at ViCentra has

always been to design solutions for

people with diabetes so they can spend

less time thinking about diabetes and

more time living life. We know diabetes

isn't a 'one-size fits all' condition and

don't think pumps should be either, so

we are delighted to be launching Kaleido

in the UK. Our company was founded by

two Brits and it feels great to be bringing

it home."

The launch in the UK will be phased,

available through select clinics in the

coming months, then rolled out more

widely across the UK later in 2019 (more

details to come in due course). Michael

Graves, CEO of ViCentra has added,

"We are proud to be moving beyond the

Netherlands and into the rest of the world.

We have been working on Kaleido for

quite a few years now and it's great to see

it finally come to life in other countries. The

UK is the first of many countries where

Kaleido will soon be available."

The pump weighs in at just 19g. It's

controlled via a small Bluetooth handset

and is fully rechargeable. The pump and

handset are available in ten colours and

can be used alongside any blood glucose

monitor.

National Feet Week took place 13- 20

May with the aim of encouraging people

of all ages to prioritise foot health, the

way they would book regular check-ups

at the dentist or optician. Everyone with

diabetes should be getting an annual foot

examination, but really everyone should.

Common foot complaints left

untreated can lead to serious issues and

pain. Fungal nail infections, corns, and

hard skin can all be routinely treated. With

summer approaching, foot conditions

such as hard skin are more visible with

open-toed and flimsier shoes being

worn, and which can exacerbate minor

problems leading them to escalate. Tony

Gavin, leading UK podiatrist and CEO at

footcare company OSGO explains, "It's

our mission to make people prioritise their

foot health in the same way they would

eye and dental care. We are sure that

anyone considering a visit to the podiatrist

will never look back once they have made

a commitment to regular footcare."
