About OPEN

Digital innovations in healthcare have typically followed a ‘top-down’ pathway, with device manufacturers leading the design and production of technology-enabled solutions, and patients involved only as users of the end product. However, this is now being disrupted by the increasing influence and popularity of people with diabetes building “Do-it-yourself Artificial Pancreas Systems” (‘DIYAPS’) through remote control of medical devices with an open-source algorithm. Being built by everyone on one's own, these systems are neither CE-marked nor FDA-approved and as such, there is only a marginal amount of scientific evidence about their efficacy. The “OPEN” project brings together an international and intersectoral consortium of patient innovators, clinicians, social scientists, computer scientists and patient advocacy organizations in order to investigate various aspects of DIYAPS systems and to improve the lack of evidence.
