That said, I don't think this particular technology is anything special. So far as I know this is basically the existing pump/monitor combo Medtronic has been pushing for a while now just with a new feature to cut off the pump in the event it detects signs of hypoglycemia. The existing system sucks because you end up having to inject two different devices, the infusion set for the pump, and another device for the monitor, and they can't be anywhere near each other either. I might consider getting an integrated pump/monitor if they can ever manage to get both functions in a single package, but till then count me out. I'm actually betting they come up with a cure for at least some forms of type 1 diabetes before they manage to overcome that particular hurdle though.
