The DBLG1 algorithm developed by Diabeloop is hosted in a dedicated handset , connected via Bluetooth to a Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) and an insulin pump.
The DBLG1 algorithm adjusts the basal insulin in real time to maintain glucose control and reduce hypo- and hyperglycemia.
Every 5 minutes, a glucose measurement is transmitted via Bluetooth technology to the handset.
The DBLG1 algorithm, thanks to its artificial intelligence, analyzes data in real time and calculates the right dose of insulin to administer, considering the person's personalised settings and the information they have entered (meal or physical activity). This is what we call an hybrid closed-loop system.
