Emerging Technologies

Emerging technology has seen the introduction of commercial hybrid closed loop systems to support the management of type 1 diabetes. This field is evolving quickly with further choices to be launched soon. There are also Do It Yourself (DIY) hybrid closed loop technologies, built by individuals living with diabetes for their own use. Whilst these DIY technologies are not endorsed by Diabetes Australia it is important for people living with diabetes and their families to be provided the background information about them, as well as the risks and potential benefits of their use.

Our guest speaker, Endocrinologist Dr Grant Cracknell will provide information about current new technologies including:

  • How current hybrid closed-loop solutions work
  • Commercial options available 
  • The potential risks and benefits of using DIY Technology solutions 
  • What people should expect from healthcare professionals in supporting their use 

You will also have the opportunity to hear, first hand, from a person living with type 1 diabetes who is currently using new technologies to support their diabetes management.
