Since its recent commercial launch, the Spring Universal Infusion Set has been particularly well received by parents of children with type 1 diabetes. Specifically, the following features were highly favored: the automatic all-in-one inserter (which gives young patients the independence to do their own site changes), the lightning-fast needle insertion with automatic retraction (minimizing insertion sensation and reducing sharps injuries and fear-factor), and the detach-detect mechanism (allowing for a peace of mind, especially at night in case of cannula dislodging and subsequent insulin leaking at site).
Following user feedback, Spring is planning to launch a special line of infusion sets for pediatric patients. Aside from the features found in all of its sets, the Spring Universal Pediatric will offer a 4.5mm cannula, 30cm tubing, and a multicolor inserter. Other features are currently being discussed in focus groups and Spring welcomes public feedback which can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. The estimated product launch will coincide with the AADE conference in August of 2012, with a sneak-peak preview at the ADA Scientific Sessions in June.
