Medtronic has introduced its Extended infusion set — the first and only infusion set that can be worn for up to seven days – in Finland and Belgium.
This new kit doubles the length of time an infusion set can be worn so users can safely stay on insulin pump therapy with fewer interruptions and insertions while introducing enhanced convenience and comfort to their diabetes management routine.
The Medtronic Extended infusion set recently received positive feedback about the experience from more than 100 insulin pump users in Finland who had a chance to use this product as part of a patient evaluation program. The set is compatible with all MiniMed 600 and 700 series insulin pumps.
The Medtronic Extended infusion set was developed in partnership with ConvaTec’s Unomedical subsidiary, the world’s largest producer of infusion sets. Through a phased approach, the set will be available in other European countries during 2021.
