The new device, which is designed to automatically insert insulin for people suffering from type 1 diabetes (lat. Diabetes Mellitus) was developed by the South Korean company EOFlow Co., Ltd. The International Diabetes Federation recently published updated data showing that the number of people with diabetes worldwide has increased from 108 million to 422 million. The global prevalence of diabetes among people over 18 years has increased from 4.7% to 8.5%. WHO predicts that diabetes will be ranked seventh among the causes of death in 2030. Every 5 seconds someone has diabetes in the world, and every 7 seconds someone dies from this disease, which has become a non-infectious epidemic of the 21st century. Recent evidence indicates that people in low- and middle-income countries bear the brunt of the epidemic and that this disease affects far more people of working age than previously thought.
