Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. is a medical device company with an approach to design, develop and commercialize products for people with insulin-dependent diabetes. The Company designed and commercialized its flagship product, the t:slim Insulin Delivery System, or t:slim, based on its technology platform and consumer-focused approach. Its technology platform features Micro-Delivery Technology, a miniaturized pumping mechanism, which draws insulin from a flexible bag within the pump’s cartridge rather than relying on a syringe and plunger mechanism. The t:slim also features an embedded software architecture, a vivid color touch screen and a micro-USB connection that supports both a rechargeable battery and t:connect, its data management software. It also applies the science of human factors to its design and development process, which seeks to optimize its devices to the intended users, allowing users to operate the devices in their intended environment.
