Milpitas, Calif., June 1, 2022 – Bigfoot Biomedical, a mission-driven company dedicated to supporting better health outcomes for people with insulin-requiring diabetes, today announced late-breaking presentation of “The First Real World Experience with Bigfoot Unity: A 3-Month Retrospective Analysis” at the 2022 American Diabetes Association (ADA) 82nd Scientific Sessions. The company will also host a product theater at the event focused on the shift from traditional clinical care to remote physiologic monitoring and management of people on multiple daily injections (MDI) of insulin. The ADA Scientific Sessions will take place virtually and in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 3-7.
"We are excited to deliver critical diabetes innovation and present our first real-world data during ADA," said Jeffrey Brewer, CEO of Bigfoot Biomedical. "Supporting populations using MDI therapy, particularly those with Type 2 diabetes, is central to our mission as they have historically had fewer solutions to manage their intensive insulin therapy. Now we can provide tools that meet them where they are in their MDI therapy."
Bigfoot will disclose additional information about the presentation aligned with the American Diabetes Association's abstract embargo policies.

About Bigfoot Unity® Diabetes Management System
Bigfoot Unity® Diabetes Management System was granted FDA 510(k) clearance in May 2021 for use by individuals ages 12 and up. The system features connected smart pen caps that recommend insulin doses for people using multiple daily injection (MDI) therapy. The system is the first and only solution for people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes on MDI therapy that directly uses integrated continuous glucose monitoring system (iCGM) data from Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre 2 system to provide an insulin dose recommendation, which is based on a physician’s instructions. The dose is displayed directly on a proprietary, connected smart cap for the person's disposable insulin pens without the need to manually input glucose data on a separate device.
