[IP] Choosing a pump (Bob A.)
> 1) Mimi med is working on a closed loop technology
Disetronic is also working on a closed loop system but they are working on
it in Europe and not the US. Most go to Europe first then they apply for
FDA approval or for trials.
> 2) They are inherently safer. Safety is more important than
Both MM and Disetronic are very safe. their is no "safer" both have
advantages and disadvantages.
MM is a new company, Disetronic had more years in pumping technology. I
would like to hear how/what you were told to decide that Dis. was a less
> 3) The Htron is obsolete technology
H-TRon is an old pump. But they do have 3 other pumps. H-tron Plus,
Dahedi, and the D-Tron. The Dahedi and D-Tron are new to the US and the
D-tron is Totally new which will rank up to or pass the MM 508 (IMHO).
> 4) New models are risky
Yes new Models are risky just like everything else as we have recently
encountered with the MM 508s problems which all new models tend to happen.
Bottom line is that Pumps (all of them) are good the all basically do
the same thing just have different bells and whistles.
my advice is to research from different views and NEVER take 1 or 2 peoples
opinion on a pump or its features.. people tend to be loyal to their
some of the things you mentioned is true some is not..
I wish you the best in pumping ..
