Flowsion has just received approval of the GLUCOSTAT project under the EU SME programme.
In that respect Flowsion will over two years receive a grant of m€ 2.5.
Flowsion will during the GLUCOSTAT project period from 2017 to 2019 develop and get the CE mark for the closed loop system named GLYCOSTAT.
GLYCOSTAT will be able to act like an artificial pancreas in that it will automatically control the blood glucose concentration of ICU patient to remain in the range determined by the ICU doctors and nurses.
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.
