FDA Clears Clibra’s Insulin Patch


Business Wire reports that Calibra Medical Inc., formerly known as Seattle Medical Technologies Inc., announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given Finesse, the company’s insulin patch-pen, 510(k) clearance.
Only 2” long, 1” wide and ¼” thick, Finesse is able to hold and deliver prescribed amounts of insulin over multiple days while remaining firmly in place throughout a patient’s daily activities, including showering, exercising and sleeping.
Finesse is the first of several non-electronic devices under development by the company that simplify mealtime insulin delivery. Finesse represents a new category of simple mechanical devices intended to make insulin therapy adherence easier for patients to achieve at an affordable price point. The company has already initiated a clinical trial in the US.

I have been diabetic for 50 years basically no health problems on a pump would like to know more about the patch


I would like to be part of the trial for this product.  I have had diabetes since childhood (currently 45 y/o) and am tired of the constant sticks, gear and such.  Any information you can send me would be greatly appreciated.  I know some companies pay their participants for the study, I do not need to be paid for it, I just want something that is easy to use and won’t hinder my day to day activities.


i want to know all about…..


I have had Diabetes since 1973 and over time, there are certain areas which I can no longer insert a needle into due to the build up of fatty tissue, which is a result of the insertion of numerous needles.  I worry that in years to come, I will run out of areas which I am able to insert a needle and, therefore, I would be very interested in finding out more information about the insulin patch and would also like to be involved in any trials regarding this product.
