Re: [IP] pump selection questions



Richard and Gordon,

I just started on the Animas pump, ok still not on insulin till next week
but I just had my training session.  I liked the way the pump was built and
my Animas rep had a MM 507 to show me when I first met with him, in direct
comparison the Minimed was chinsey in my opion.  The biggest selling point
for me was the water proofness of the Animas with no special case etc.
Richard I would get the info from each co. and then call to get an appt with
a rep to see them up close and personal. Some of the reps may have had other
companys pumps(like my rep did) and they may be able to show you those as a
comparison.

John
