Well it appears someone is listening to diabetes patients' cry for devices that work-cool and look-cool.
Today Tandem Diabetes Care announces it has approval from the FDA to market t:slim™, the smallest insulin pump with a color touch screen that works and looks more like your iphone.
Kim Blickenstaff, President and CEO of Tandem said, "In creating t:slim we spoke with more than 4,000 healthcare professionals and people with diabetes, and the clear message we heard was, "make it cool and make it uncomplicated to use."
While a traditional tubed pump, the t:slim is slimmer and has a rechargeable battery and USB connectivity to management software.
t:slim launches the first half of 2012. The company is now putting customer support, sales and clinical and business operations in place in preparation.
