Medtronic got its license for selling MiniMed 670G in the USA last autumn. But the device has just hit American stores.
MiniMed 670G includes several components: a sensor for measuring glucose level and an insulin pump itself. The equipment is fastened to the user’s body. The sensor checks glucose level every five minutes and transmits data to the pump. The last one calculates a necessary dose of insulin and, if necessary, gives its owner an injection.
However, it cannot be said that the user won’t need to monitor the work of MiniMed 670G. The system needs regular calibration via a glucose meter that goes with the device.
