Design of Wireless Secure Monitoring and Controlling of Insulin Pump
Insulin pump is a small electronic device used to help diabetes patients to control the glucose level, it can be carried easily and place under clothes. The important of insulin pump due to the risks of ignoring monitoring diabetes disease which caused the side effects on human health such as heart disease and eyes problems. Improving the operation mechanism of insulin pump is important challenge to reduce the effects of diabetes disease. The objective of this paper is designing a closed loop insulin pump which monitoring glucose and pumped insulin. The design provided with wireless monitoring system. The system in this paper combined two parts hardware and software. The hardware based on Arduino microcontroller which processed the collected data from the sensor and controlled the pumping of insulin. Visual basic language was used to design the monitoring page which only can be accessed by using the correct password and username to guarantee secure information between the doctor and the patient. The monitoring page connected wirelessly via XBee unit. The simulation results tested the system in different operation cases. The obtained results reveal that the system provides high performance and achieved the required goals.
