FDA Approves First Insulin Delivery App

The FDA has approved the first smartphone app to control insulin delivery. The app from Tandem Diabetes Care allows the user to wirelessly control the company’s t:slim X2 insulin pump. It is the first app of its kind to be cleared by the FDA.

Anything that can be hacked will be hacked. That includes all wireless remote control systems. The press release says, “The t:connect mobile app is a secure, user-friendly mobile application…” Wireless security must be the key innovation here. If so, they’re not making a big deal out of it.
