Powering Mobility in Our Daily Lives: Why Spring-Energized Seals Are Critical in Portable Insulin Pumps

Posted by Andy Li on Aug 28, 2019

More than 100 million Americans have diabetes or pre-diabetes, says the Center for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization estimated 422 million people worldwide had the disease in 2014, up from 108 million in 1980. Factors contributing to this growth include rising worldwide geriatric populations and more sedentary lifestyles.

Managing diabetes—with exercise, diet and medication—is a growing challenge for many; however, this challenge can be managed with the right medical equipment such as portable insulin pumps where design and manufacture are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Due to time and expense required to achieve FDA approval and improve precision of insulin delivery, manufacturers are driven to design more advanced insulin pump equipment. Using spring-energized seals is a critical part of this “smart” engineering technology that is powering mobility for end users every day and improving their quality of life.
