When I got my first Medtronic insulin pump, my health insurance company paid for the remote - when I upgraded to the newest model, I kept my remote which still works for newer pump. I use my Minimed pump remote when I wear low cut tops or low cut dresses (as I will sometimes put my pump in my bra bet yet underneath my boob… uhm… yeah, one headlight shines higher than the other but then I have to adjust the other headlight to aim higher if it is a cold day, LOL!). I also turn off my alarm clock and meter option on the insulin pump when I use the remote. The remote comes in handy quite a bit for me. In my family picture (which I think is in my profile page) I had the insulin pump hidden under one boob but yet under bra and I used my remote for supper after we got our picture taken that day. It really is worth getting if you are a woman and like to wear strapless dresses or dresses that don’t have much material to cover a pump that is clipped on the strap of a bra.
The only issue I had was when I would forget to turn off the meter or alarm clock options (as I would have to go to the bathroom to Escape out of the alarm clock mode or wait a few minutes after my blood sugar level beamed to the pump to be able to do a bolus for a meal).
I do clip pump on bra strap but there are times that I like to hide the pump a little more by hiding underneath boob and the remote comes in handy when I don’t want to dig pump out from underneath boob (even though I’m sure Hubby would enjoy the show and have a good chuckle).
