Tandem Device Updater


Innovation at a record pace

Innovations in diabetes technology have become a constant in recent years. From improvements in glucose monitoring to automated insulin delivery, the industry is moving faster than ever before. Tandem is the only company that allows its customers to remotely update features on their insulin pump using a personal computer, without waiting for their insurance to cover a new device.1    


As Easy to Use as Our Pumps

We’ve designed the Tandem Device Updater to be as easy to use as our pumps. Detailed instructions
are available on your pump’s specific update page, but each update consists of these easy steps:

  1. Get Ready. Disconnect and assemble your backup insulin supplies.
  2. Install the Tandem Device Updater. It's as easy as clicking a button.
  3. Update your pump. Just follow the onscreen instructions.
  4. Complete online training. You’ll receive a detailed review of the new features.
It's that easy!
