Kaleido Insuline Pump


ViCentra works on the design and making of the Kaleido: a compact, simple and user friendly insulin pump.


As a Mechanical Design Consultant and later as a Consultant Project Engineer, I worked on several projects and supported with multiple activities to get the Kaleido back to the market.

  • I improved the design of multiple injection-molded product components (DFA, DFM) and worked together with a mold maker supplier in the design, production and validation of the molds.
  • I worked together with the Manufacturing Engineers on the cleanroom production machines to improve machine and product quality, reduce maintenance and to ensure production tooling was ready for mass production.
  • I supported the R&D team with Design Verification tooling design, protocols, execution of the testing activities and reporting.
  • I worked together with a manufacturing and electrical engineer to CE mark the machines (gap assessment, risk assessment, CE documentation, machine safety design, regulations, technical documentation)
  • I worked together with a machine builder to duplicate the machine line and was partly responsible for validation of the machines (IQ, TMV, PC, OQ and PQ).
