Posted Nov 19 2011 2:47am
This has to be the best looking pump I have seen and not being a diabetic I can’t say a lot more about devices and their use but looking at it compared to what is out there now makes it stand out. You connect the device to your Mac or Windows computer to send all the data and it holds 90 days of information. The T-connect system also works with other glucose meters too as well as the pump. BD
