Mann was a prolific inventor who developed many lifesaving medical devices including the rechargeable pacemaker which formed the basis of the successful Pacesetter company. Mann continued to perfect the pacemaker and developed other biomedical devices. Though he sold Pacesetter to Siemens in 1985, he continued to tinker with new products and designed the first affordable insulin pump for diabetes sufferers.
