FDA Approves CamAPS FX Hybrid Closed-Loop Insulin Delivery App


The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a hybrid, closed-loop, insulin-delivery Android app. On May 29, 2024, CamDiab, a company that creates state-of-the-art diabetes management technologies, revealed that the CamAPS FX had received approval.

CamAPS FX is approved for people with type 1 diabetes who are two years of age or older, including those who are pregnant.

CamAPS FX works in unison with the FreeStyle Libre 3 and the Dexcom G6 to produce a hybrid, closed-loop system that is compatible with the Ypsomed mylife YpsoPump.

The app allows the pump and CGM to speak to one another—creating an “artificial pancreas.”

More than 27,000 people in 15 countries have already used the product, according to CamDiab.
