Tandem Diabetes Care t:Slim X2 insulin pump
The t slim X2 insulin pump from Tandem Diabetes Care is a newer version of its popular MiniMed line. It has a Personal Profile feature that enables users to adjust the insulin delivery based on their preferred settings. The pump delivers insulin in two separate steps, a basal rate and a bolus. When setting the basal rate, users must acknowledge that they've done so and confirm the change in blood sugar levels.
With its advanced touchscreen technology and sleek design, the t.slim X2 insulin pump offers convenience that will help diabetics avoid multiple daily injections. The pump's easy-to-use menus and built-in rechargeable battery allow for quick access to frequently used functions. This pump also offers fast data transfer and is compatible with all existing models, including the t.slim and t.flex.
The t.slim X2 insulin pump is compatible with Basal-IQ technology, which is a feature that allows diabetics to check their blood glucose levels and adjust their insulin dose. The pump is not as expensive as other insulin pumps, but it does come with several features that make it unique. The device requires a Dexcom G6 system or Basal-IQ system to function properly. Both of these products are highly expensive, so you may want to consider them before buying.
The t.slim X2 insulin pump offers a remote updater, which allows users to upgrade their insulin pump software without the need to visit a medical facility. It is compatible with the Tandem insulin pump range, and is available online and through fax.

Tandem t: connect mobile app compatibility with smartphone hardware and operating systems
In addition to the t.connect mobile app, Tandem's t:slim X2 pump is compatible with a variety of smartphone operating systems and hardware. However, compatibility isn't a guarantee of future performance. If you're using a tablet, the t:slim X2 app may not be compatible with your tablet. However, it does support the device's wireless charging capabilities.
The t:connect mobile app is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones, but the features of the app vary depending on your insulin pump and smartphone hardware. The app requires a smartphone OS version 6.3.1 or higher to function properly. It also doesn't support bolusing from your smartphone. If you have an iPhone or an Android, you can see if your device is compatible by tapping “Settings” and then “About”.
Users want the ability to set lower glucose targets. Other features that they'd like to see in the app include the ability to bolus remotely. The device is designed for smartphones with Android, Apple, and Windows operating systems. While this may be a bit expensive, it's the perfect device for patients who need a diabetes device for managing their blood glucose levels. It can help patients with diabetes and improve their health.
Basal-IQ predictive low glucose suspend technology
T slim X2 users can now enjoy the benefits of this new insulin pump. With the help of its Basal-IQ predictive low glucose suspend technology, users will not have to worry about hypoglycemia. Basal-IQ uses the data from the Dexcom G6 CGM to predict your blood glucose levels 30 minutes before you need to take insulin. If your CGM reads below 70 mg/dL, you can simply delay insulin delivery until your blood glucose levels rise.
The t slim X2's Basal-IQ predictive low glucose suspend technology works by automatically adjusting your insulin when your blood sugar is below your target. However, the pump is still necessary to be used with a continuous glucose monitor such as the Dexcom G6. With Basal-IQ, the pump will only adjust insulin levels when your blood glucose level is too low.
The t slim X2's Basal-IQ system has been approved for use by children as young as six years old. It works with the Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitoring system to accurately predict your glucose levels. By automatically suspending insulin delivery, the t slim X2 helps prevent hypoglycemia without the hassle of fingersticks. Its user-friendly design makes it easier for patients to operate.
The t-slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ predictive low glucose suspend technology aims to help diabetics live a more normal life by predicting their glucose levels. By using the t-slim X2's touchscreen and integrated Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor, patients can easily access the pump's data from anywhere in the world.
Tandem t:lock Luer-Lock Connectors
From September 5, 2017, Tandem will transition to t:lock Connectors, which will be sold under the brand names AutoSoft, VariSoft, and TruSteel. The transition will involve a gradual rollout and will begin with the existing sets, but customers can expect to receive the new t:lock Connectors soon. Customers who already have t:lock Connectors will transition to the new connectors in a gradual manner, with full transition beginning by the end of 2017.
The t:lock Connector looks just like a normal Luer-lock connector, but is designed to enhance the experience of filling insulin infusion sets. Its smaller inner cavity allows for faster filling, meaning less insulin is wasted and less time is needed to fill the infusion set tubing. The t:lock Connector is the latest version of this popular connector and is compatible with other insulin pumps.
The t:lock Luer-Lock connector is compatible with the new version of Tandem insulin pumps, as well as the t:lock infusion sets, which reduces fill time by up to 30 seconds. The t:lock connector is similar to the original Luer-Lock connector and is made by Unomedical a/s, a subsidiary of ConvaTec Group Plc.
As the t:lock infusion set has not been approved by the TGA, AMSL is required to continue supplying the original Luer-lock infusion sets. However, Medtronic continues to sell the Luer-Lock sets for the 503 pump, so if you need to replace the Luer-Lock set, this will not cause an inventory issue for you.
Tandem t: lock Connectors reduce time required to fill infusion sets
The t:lock Connector was developed by Tandem, makers of the first touchscreen insulin pump. These new connectors are made to reduce the time it takes to fill infusion sets by 30 seconds. They are sold under the AutoSoft, VariSoft, and TruSteel brands. Tandem will continue to sell the current version of the infusion set under the AutoSoft and VariSoft brands, while continuing to sell the TruSteel brand.
Currently, most infusion sets are inserted at a thirty-degree angle. Different angles reduce the chance of ripping and crimping. Tandem and Medtronic both sell infusion sets with an angled needle. Although there are risks associated with infusion sets that require a certain amount of time to fill, the angled infusion set is preferred by some patients.
The t:lock Connectors are designed to work with infusion sets equipped with the t:lock locking mechanism. The t:lock connectors reduce the time required to fill an infusion set by thirty seconds and lessen the use of 4.4 units of insulin in the fill process. This connector is compatible with the Tandem t:slim Insulin Pump System. The t:slim Insulin Pump System includes 10 Tandem t:slim 3mL Cartridges with the t:lock connector.
The Mio infusion set is an all-in-one design, which makes it easy to insert with one hand. The needle is kink-free, and the insertion site can be thrown away after use. Tandem also offers a version of the MiniMed Sure-T that uses a t:lock locking mechanism. The infusion set does not require additional devices, which is another advantage.
