The device lag, as it is known, is one of the main reasons why so many medical device manufacturers have adopted a “Europe first” strategy when marketing a new device. The approval process in the United States also is quite onerous. It’s a hurdle that UK-based Timesulin, which has developed a smart cap for insulin pens sold in 40 countries, has yet to clear.
