Tandem Diabetes Care finally won European regulatory clearance to introduce its t:slim X2 insulin pump. The device can be reprogrammed and upgraded in order to be able to interface with other devices and to take advantage of newly introduced algorithms and features. As a major first capability provided by this is the compatibility with the Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitor and an algorithm that stops insulin delivery when it calculates a high chance for a case of hypoglycemia.

The device is controlled via its touchscreen and Bluetooth wireless connectivity allows for transfer of data between the pump and other devices, as well as leaving potential open for sending and receiving control commands from trusted sources.

Because the interface resembles common smartphones, you can even download a simulator app (t:simulator) to see how you’d use and control the pump. A rechargeable battery powers the device and it holds 300 units of insulin when full. And because it’s waterproof, you can even take it swimming.
