Tandem Diabetes announced today that they will begin taking orders for the new t:slim insulin pump starting June 11, 2012. Exciting news in the insulin pump market!
Here's the full press release from Tandem.
The new pump uses a touchscreen device that looks akin to an iPhone. Here's a short review from DiabetesDaily about it as well.
It should be interesting to see what develops from the more established insulin pump companies in order to offer a competitive device, especially with the new user interface introduced with a device like this!
I guess for me this isn't as significant of an issue because I never found either CGM (Medtronic's or Dexcom's) accurate and reliable enough to really warn me about a low BG. But this was just my experience and I know many others have been saved countless times because of their CGM. I think my interstitial fluid is off or something ;-)
A couple suggestions for MM:
Keep the SUSPEND message visible, the entire time the pump is suspended.
Also, an alarm for when your pump is empty. Not just when the reservoir is getting low.
I like the tube, because you can detach and reattach easily.
