Researchers have successfully tested on animals a smart insulin-delivery patch that can monitor and manage glucose levels in people with diabetes and deliver the necessary insulin dosage.

The patch has doses of insulin pre-loaded in tiny micro-needles, less than one-millimeter in length, that deliver medicine when blood sugar levels reach a certain threshold.
