Advanced Therapeutics

A catch up with Advanced Therapeutics and its range

of Dana Diabecare insulin pumps. By Sue Marshall

Any Dana app screen. Dana RS insulin pump. Smartphone control of pump.

This year the Dana RS insulin

pump has been joined by

the Dana i (the i stands

for intuitive, intelligent,

innovative and interoperable) in

Advanced Therapeutics' stable of

diabetes technology products.

Advanced Therapeutics has been

offering diabetes tech for 16 years

and was the original distributor of

the Dexcom CGM in the UK before

that company set up it's own UK

subsidiary. Founder and Managing

Director John Hughes has extensive

experience of insulin pump therapy

having been in the diabetes sector

since insulin pumps were first

introduced in the UK in 1986 and was

responsible for bringing insulin pump

therapy back to the UK in 1999

Advanced Therapeutics now stock

the two variants of the Dana pump

made by South Korean company

SOOIL. The first SOOIL insulin

pump was clinically tested at Seoul

National University Hospital in 1979

and became the first commercially

available insulin pump in 1980.

Following ongoing research and

development, and since called

Diabecare, SOOIL obtained approval

for the Dana Diabecare insulin

pump from the KFDA (Korean Food

and Drink Administration) in 1998.

Dr Soo Bong Choi, a practising

endocrinologist with 40 years

experience of treating both Type 1

and Type 2 patients, designed the

DANA Diabecare insulin pump series

which is now being used by more

than 150,000 users in 47 countries.

Says Hughes, "The Dana

pumps feature automated delivery

via a smartphone and seamless

connectivity between the pump and

either a smartphone or other device.

We're really only at the early stages

- a melting pot - when it comes to

interoperability as regards diabetes

devices. Many products, companies

and health systems have to adapt to

this change."

Dana RS

The Dana RS has been designed to

be 'alternate controller enabled',

known as an ACE pump. It's Bluetooth

capability allows for quick and

stable connections to smartphones,

providing the bridge needed for

artificial pancreas algorithms to

control the insulin delivery from

the RS (which stands for 'remote

system').

As well as being controlled by

it's keypad the Dana RS pump can

be controlled via a smartphone via

the Any Dana A (for Android) or

Any Dana I (for iOS) App and is one

of the smallest and lightest insulin

pumps available.

This move to our

own premises

is a landmark

development for

our company.
