Anything that promotes blood flow to an infusion site will speed up 
the absorption of insulin. i.e. hot bath, exercise, etc...

If you have been using the same area for a long time for injections, 
infusion sites, etc... and you have built up scar tissue or otherwise 
harmed the sites so that they do not absorb as well, you may well see 
improved absorption with new site areas. If the site is "installed" 
in a spot overlying muscle tissue that moves, this could also promote 
greater absorption. But then again...... YMMV.
