Before we left for the AADE conference last week, we had several requests for more info about the new FDA-approved Spring universal infusion set.

We reported on the company and their new infusion set AND insulin pump from the American Diabetes Association's Scientific Sessions in June. Their insulin pump, the Spring Zone, has been submitted for CE mark, but since it's not yet FDA approved, we were not able to film anything on that new product. However, we did take a closer look at their newest commercially available product, the Universal Detach Detect Infusion Set. Zoe Myers, Chief Commercial Officer at Spring and a fellow type 1, was kind enough to give us a live demonstration of how the new infusion set works, with some tips on what makes it unique:

The infusion set is available through Edgepark, Spring's US distributor. It is covered under most major insurances, and is billed under the same code as other infusion sets. Zoe says that Edgepark handles all insurance billing for patients. The only caveat with the Spring universal infusion set is that it requires an adapter to work with Medtronic insulin pumps, because of Medtronic's proprietary patented infusion set technology.

If you've tried the new Spring infusion set, we'd love to know what you think. Does the special error detection technology really make you feel safer?
