Case Study: Tandem Mobi

The R&D teams at Tandem Diabetes Care were developing the world’s smallest, durable insulin delivery system – Tandem Mobi. Tandem Mobi would be the first insulin pump that had the only control and display interface provided from an app through an off-the-shelf iPhone. Tandem needed a skilled and trusted partner to extend its internal human factors team and supply experienced researchers to assist in conducting the formative studies and a summative study required for submission to the FDA.

This was one of the largest and most complex projects undertaken by Kaleidoscope’s Human Factors team. Working with some of the top human factors consulting and recruiting companies, Kaleidoscope successfully provided additional team members who assisted in all phases of the program.

The Tandem Mobi system received FDA clearance in July, 2023 and was commercially released to the market in early 2024.

Companies that invest in human factors engineering early in the development process gain efficiencies and save budget while also producing better-designed, more intuitive products that their customers will value.
