A place only accessible by boat, home to the densest population of black bears and cougars on the continent, and known for its knee deep mud, vertical climbs, and ankle tweaking cobblestone beaches. Each of the trekkers lives with type 1 diabetes.

Why Remote Pump Software Updates Matter

Up until recently, insulin pumps didn’t change that much - they did basal, they did bolus, and that was about it, so the typical 4-year insurance company reimbursement cycle wasn’t really a big deal. But the pace of innovation in diabetes technology has picked up rapidly. What if you could choose a pump today that could be updated with new features as they become approved and available?
