Tandem Diabetes Care (San Diego, CA) is finally releasing its long awaited t:slim Insulin Delivery System, a 300 unit insulin pump that looks like it was designed by Apple. The face of the t:slim is the size of a credit card and all functions are controlled through its beautiful touch screen.
It’s recharged using a standard micro-USB cable, so beside a wall socket you can use your laptop or, via a cheap adapter, your car’s cigarette lighter to keep the t:slim energized. The USB port can also be used to download historical data from the device.
