Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) said today it has completed the acquisition of Klue, a San Jose, Calif.-based software company that tracks people’s eating in real-time and analyzes it with artificial intelligence (AI) to help control diabetes.
Medtronic plans to incorporate Klue’s technology into its Personalized Closed Loop (PCL) insulin pump system, which won FDA breakthrough device designation in February. PCL is designed to automate insulin delivery in real-time, adapting to the user to simplify diabetes management, according to the company. Medtronic also said it will use Klue’s technology to boost analytics and insights for its continuous glucose monitor (CGM) technology to help people using multiple daily injections stay ahead of high- and low-glucose events.
