Trial Time

Ping and 522

Anyone else feel like pump technology hasn't advanced all that much recently? I've had my 522 for about 3.5 years now, and the new "upgrade" seems to be features that other pumps already had before I got mine.

So I'm looking into other options. I feel like I know way too much about other pumps and why they wouldn't work for me. The Nipro Amigo is cute, but only has one infusion set available, and I'm allergic to it. The Accucheck Spirit comes with a PDA, which I love, but it doesn't talk to the pump; it just calculates your dose because there's no bolus calculator on the pump itself.

So I'm doing a trial of the Ping.
