We've spent 25 years collecting customer feedback from pump users to develop infusion sets that are easy to use, convenient and comfortable to wear. We offer a complete line of Sertable® insertion devices compatible with different infusion sets for different sizes, shapes and types of people.
Thin, plastic tubing delivers insulin from the pump to your body. This tubing comes in two different lengths to accommodate different needs. At the end of the tubing is a soft, flexible cannula, which is a small, tapered tube. With the help of an insertion device, you insert the cannula under your skin, somewhere where you'd inject using a syringe - on your abdomen, thigh or buttocks. This spot is called your infusion site, and it remains in place for up to three days. No needle stays under your skin.
It's important to change your infusion set and reservoir at least every 3 days and rotate your site for optimal health and minimal complications.
