Milpitas, Calif., March 09, 2023 – Bigfoot Biomedical (Bigfoot), a leader in developing intelligent connected injection support systems, has been selected as one of Fast Company's 2023 "World’s Most Innovative Companies” in the medical device category. Fast Company is the world’s leading business media brand, with an editorial focus on innovation in technology, leadership, world changing ideas, creativity, and design.
“Our focus on innovation to simplify the complexities of diabetes management for people living with insulin-requiring diabetes is core to our mission, and it’s an honor to see this commitment validated by Fast Company,” said Jeffrey Brewer, CEO of Bigfoot Biomedical. “I’m amazed by the work being done to improve healthcare by fellow honorees on this list and am incredibly proud of the hard work of the Bigfoot team that made this recognition possible.”
Bigfoot was recognized by Fast Company for its Bigfoot Unity® Diabetes Management System, the first and only FDA-cleared dose decision support system based upon continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) data, offering a simple tool for people with diabetes who take multiple daily injections (MDI) of insulin.
“What a strange and thrilling year it has been to honor this year’s Most Innovative Companies. This year’s list compiles some of the most cutting-edge groundbreakers who are changing our world every single day, from legacy organizations like McDonald’s to upstarts like MrBeast and institutions such as NASA. Everyone on this list does something completely, uniquely different, yet, they all have one thing in common: innovation,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan.
The Bigfoot Unity System enables, for the first time, people on multiple daily injections of insulin therapy to get an insulin dose suggestion, on demand, based on CGM data and their doctor’s instructions – helping to take the anxious guesswork out of daily insulin management.
