Medtronic has announced the European launch of MiniMed Duo, the world’s first two-in-one glucose sensor and insulin infusion set, simplifying integrated insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). MiniMed Duo, which is used with the MiniMed Veo system (the European version of the Minimed 530G), makes it easier for more people with diabetes to benefit from CGM. The product received CE (Conformité Européenne) mark this week. 

Benefits of the MiniMed Duo include:

Enhanced simplicity:

  • Both the glucose sensor and cannula (the tiny tube that goes into the body to deliver the insulin) are inserted with one easy-to-use insertion device. 
  • People with diabetes only have to remember to change one device every 3-days.

There’s no need to manage two different sites on the body while bathing, exercising or being active. Greater comfort: 

  • A smaller footprint on the body (compared to a separate CGM sensor and infusion set) means less skin covered by adhesive tape.
  • A single-button insertion and automatic needle retraction (so patients don’t have to see the needle) were specifically designed for greater comfort.
  • In a study, 95.8% of people using MiniMed Duo rated pain at the time of insertion at 0 or 1 out of 10 … Read the Rest
