Tandem Diabetes Care Inc., a medical device company in San Diego, announced that its t:flex Insulin Pump is on the market, with shipments planned in June.
The 480-unit t:flex Pump, cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in January 2015, is the largest capacity insulin pump currently offered in the United States.
The t:flex Pump is designed for people who require more than 80 units of U-100 insulin per day, such as teenagers with type 1 diabetes and many people with type 2 diabetes. For people with greater insulin needs, the pump offers the benefits of pump therapy without the frequent reservoir changes required by 200 and 300-unit pumps.
