Cozmo is no more...

Yesterday, Smiths Medical announced that they will no longer make the Deltec/Cozmo insulin pump. We're very bummed about the Cozmo pump going away. We've had our daughter on it for many years and have really loved it.

In the short term, users like us who have this pump need to make sure we get our ducks in a row about supplies. It'll also be time to look at new pumps as the warranties run out. You can read the Cozmo announcement by clicking here.

The other manufacturers are investing in the evolution of the technology that ties the pump to the CGM's (continuous glucose monitors). Smiths Medical has obviously made the economic decision that they couldn't invest at the same levels in order to compete. I hate that the Cozmo is going away, but I'm encouraged to know that a next generation of pumps is getting closer.
