device's original maker, Companion

Medical. Medtronic's InPen is the

only smart insulin pen cleared by

the FDA for use by people requiring

multiple daily injections.

With this system, users can view

their live glucose readings alongside

their insulin dose information within

a single app interface. The InPen is

also compatible with certain other

CGM systems too but, according

to the company, displays their

information on a three-hour delay.

By integrating the device with its

own CGM system, this feeds into

Medtronic's broader strategy of datadriven

diabetes management.

Medtronic's MiniMed 670G was

the first FDA-cleared CGM able to

automate insulin delivery as part of

a hybrid closed-loop system. This

has been followed most recently

by clearance of the MiniMed 780G

advanced hybrid closed loop system

(AHCL) for adults and, for the first

time, for children as young as two

years old.

Speaking of CGM, two new

models are known by internal project

names that likely won't be the final

brand names. One is Project Zeus

sensor: would still have a sevenday

wear and the same seashell

design, but it would be an "iCGM"

classification (FDA-cleared to

integrate with other devices) and

would require fingerstick calibrations

only on the first day of use. The

second is Project Synergy: an allin-one sensor/transmitter

that will

be fully disposable and have a new

look. With a flatter, squarer shape

and being 50% smaller than the

current model, it will not require any

overtape to keep it attached to the

body and have a simpler three-step

insertion process that takes just 10

seconds. It's uncertain whether it has

a longer wear-time than seven days.

This one is likely a least a couple of

years away.

Interoperability

pathway

Medtronic is undertaking the pivotal

trials needed to get the coveted

'iCGM' interoperability classification

from the FDA. As of mid-2020, the

Dexcom G6 has had this designation

to work with closed loop technology

while the FreeStyle Libre 2 has a

limited version of iCGM status,

meaning it cannot be currently used

with automated insulin delivery

devices.

In June 2019, Medtronic and

Tidepool announced that Medtronic

would work on a future interoperable

closed loop (separate from the

above-mentioned 780G AHCL. There

is no word on how far off that may

be, and what features it may offer.

Medtronic plans a CGM-integrated smart insulin pen -

called InPen - for those on multiple daily injections.
