ViCentra is an innovative medical device company focusing on the research and development, manufacturing, and commercialisation of a ground-breaking device for the management of diabetes. Kaleido, the smallest and lightest insulin pump system currently available, is designed to help people with diabetes live life on their own terms:
"For us, super accurate insulin delivery and improved control are non-negotiables, but discretion, simplicity and choice is our way of helping you live life in your own way"
Driven by ViCentra's desire to be meaningfully different, Kaleido aims to reduce the impact that diabetes can have on daily life. Utilizing Bluetooth wireless technology, Kaleido infuses colour and choice into the market, networking its hybrid patch pumps and handsets into a broader family of easy-to-use products and data services to create a customer-focused, integrated diabetes support service.
