I was looking on the Johnson & Johnson website yesterday and they have their own version of the insulin pump. It is used with the One Touch Meter. It is called the One Touch Ping. It comes with a remote so you can wear the pump anywhere within a 10 feet reach. It had software with it that allowed you to personalize it by adding food items into the bolus menu. You can enter the grams of carbs that you ate or you can choose from a food menu and it calculates more accurately for you. The menu has over 500 items on it already but there is room to add more and create a list of most frequently eaten foods.

If you go to the Johnson & Johnson site you can watch videos, request information, and check out what the pump and the remote look like. I think the screen was easier to see and the buttons were just as simple as the Deltec Cosmo that I have. I have requested information and plan to talk to doctor on next visit.

Any thoughts or opinions from you? Anyone have one?

yes I tested one and it is nice but my ins comp would not pay for it I hope yours will.
I ended up with the medtronic 722 and I love it just as much it had a higher start up but a lot cheaper in the long run A lot
best wishes

I saw that too in an article. It sounds so neat. It's wireless and that is very cool. I am not a pumper, but it is encouraging to see the technology advancing so much.
