To be fair, it may be more pertinent that Animas has been selling what is basically the same pump model for at least 10 years. The future is clearly going to be increasing AP integration (hybrid closed loop). The Vibe is just a pump plus what is essentially a virtually stand-alone receiver, packaged into a single box. The Vibe+ will be the same except with BT capability for the Dexcom G5. Animas supposedly have a pump with predictive low glucose suspend in the pipeline, but when I talked to their reps they had little or no details.
At the end of this month, I will be attending a one-day conference on pump and CGM technology that is aimed almost exclusively at health care professionals and doctors. I will try to chat up the Animas reps.
