incorporate other parameters, such as

low glucose suspend, which improves the

safety of the person living with their longterm condition by automatically stopping

insulin delivery if sensor readings are low,

preventing hypos."

Concluding his talk, Oliver said, "In

summary, the Accu-Chek Solo micropump

system offers a discreet, remotely

controlled means of insulin delivery, which

may in future be part of an automated

insulin delivery system. Pump therapy is

becoming more common, while in the

background it is still being developed.

Both patch pumps and tubed pumps

have advantages. Healthcare providers,

along with medical product suppliers,

have to fit technology around the lifestyles

of the individuals that we are trying to care

for. No tubing, short tube or long tube,

patch pump or tethered ensure flexibility

and choice. Although I'd like to point out

that at present it's a choice that lasts four

years between each pump change."

you control it with

a handheld means

check on and deliver
