My pump group tonight had reps from the pump companies as well as a dexcom rep.
My CDE was there, and told me about the VGo (info here). I'd never heard of it before. It's a very simplistic system, marketed for T2s. It has a preset 24 hr basal, and can bolus in 2u increments. Apparently inexpensive too.
The accu-chek rep had the new spirit combo. It holds 315u, you can see the reservoir through a clear window. It's almost exactly the size of my Ping with one corner cut off. The meter/remote has a really nice color screen and tons of functions, though the font is small. The pump comes with a backup pump (programmed to only work for 6 months). It uses blue tooth, and communicates with computer via IR to download. He said availability is imminent, they are in the very last stage of FDA approval. The meter will also be available as a stand-alone unit eventually. Tested my bg on it and it matched my dexcom LOL
I saw the My Sentry system at the Medtronic station. Looks good, and the alarm can be set to be LOUD. So far only available for CWD, they don't know when it will be available for everyone.
Chatted with the Dexcom rep, who I've met before, and he agreed that their case sucks. He loved my LG Chocolate case :) Nothing new coming down the pike.
The Animas rep is new to our area. I complained about the meter (scrolling issues, screen clarity) and she said a new remote/meter is about to be released (whatever that means), but she doesn't know if it's color. No news on release of the Vibe *sigh*. They are working on yet another clip.
They had snacks... water, chobani yogurt (flavored, 20 carbs), packs of some kind of crackers (12 carbs per pack). Oy. I had water ;)
