Flowsion will during the GLUCOSTAT project period from 2017 to 2019 develop and get the CE mark for the closed loop system named GLYCOSTAT®.

It has been shown that the mortality, morbidity, length of stay, and general costs related to ICU patients are drastically reduced (30-40%) when the blood glucose concentration of ICU patients are kept within the normal range.
The GLUCOSTAT project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation
programme under grant agreement 777691
