Remotely update features on your in‑warranty Tandem insulin pump.


Software Updates Add New Abilities to Your Tandem Insulin Pump

Tandem Diabetes Care is the only company that allows its customers to remotely update or add features on their in-warranty insulin pump without waiting for medical insurance to cover a new device.* With Tandem, you are investing in the pump that gets updated, not outdated.
