Tandem Diabetes Care Announces FDA Approval of t:slim G4 Insulin Pump with CGM Integration
"The t:slim G4 Pump combines our intuitive touch-screen interface and bright color display with Dexcom's CGM technology, giving the diabetes community a powerful new tool to help simplify therapy management," said
"The integration of Tandem's touch-screen interface and Dexcom's G4 PLATINUM CGM product could prove to be a powerful combination for people with diabetes," said
"We believe the t:slim G4 Pump's touch screen technology and simple user interface are a great combination for Dexcom G4 PLATINUM CGM integration," said
The t:slim G4 Pump is the newest addition to the Company's family of products, which includes the t:slim® and t:flex™ Insulin Pumps. Each pump in the portfolio features a touch-screen with a streamlined, user-friendly interface. This provides people rapid access to frequently used features while eliminating the need for excessive scrolling and button pressing, making these features simple to learn and simple to use. Each Tandem product utilizes modern technology, such as a built-in rechargeable battery and micro-USB port for convenient charging and fast data transfers. They also feature the Company's Micro-Delivery® technology that allows for basal delivery every 5 minutes in increments as small as 0.001 unit. The t:slim G4 and t:slim Pumps are the slimmest and smallest durable insulin pumps on the market, yet still hold up to 300 units of insulin, and the t:flex offers similar size benefits while holding up to 480 units of insulin.
The t:slim G4 Pump can operate as a stand-alone insulin pump without CGM, or be paired with a Dexcom G4 PLATINUM sensor. When paired with a sensor, the CGM component of the pump closely mimics the interface of the Dexcom system, tracking glucose continuously and displaying color-coded graphs and arrows directly on the Pump's home screen2. The system also allows users to program personalized information, such as glucose targets and alerts, and has an alarm feature to notify the user if glucose levels rise or fall to dangerous levels.
