Tandem Diabetes Care Release: t:slim® Insulin Pump Now Available


8/31/2012 9:38:01 AM

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TandemDiabetes Care®, Inc. ("Tandem") announced today that it has started shipping the t:slim® Insulin Pump to customers. The t:slim Insulin Pump is the only insulin pump with a touch screen approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It has the footprint of a credit card, the look of a smart phone, and is up to 25 percent slimmer than other 300-unit pumps.[1] Unlike other insulin pumps that have complex menus and require excessive button pressing, the t:slim Pump's vivid color touch screen is the window to an easy-to-use interface that places everything at the touch of a finger.

"Our immediate objective is to help each customer obtain a t:slim Pump as quickly as possible," continued Blickenstaff. "We have a dedicated insurance verification team ready to help each patient through the process on a case-by case basis. Our goal is to help secure in-network coverage for the t:slim Pump, whether that is directly through Tandem, or through our expanding network of medical equipment distributors."
