Introducing the Basal-IQ Technology Update for the t:slim X2 Insulin Pump

Posted Aug 10, 2020.

Basal-IQ technology is now available in Australia!  

The t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology is compatible with the new Dexcom G6 CGM System^. Basal-IQ technology helps to reduce the frequency and duration of low-glucose events1 by predicting glucose levels 30 minutes ahead and suspending insulin if they are expected to drop below 4.4 mmol/L, or if a CGM reading falls below 3.9 mmol/L.¶

With the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology you can expect all the same features from the t:slim X2 insulin pump such as remote feature updates, slim design, rechargeable battery and micro-delivery™ technology.  Plus the following NEW features*:

  • NEW integration with Dexcom G6
  • NEW menu structure
  • NEW max basal limit feature
  • NEW security PIN

The t:slim X2 insulin pump can now be purchased with Basal-IQ software installed. More information is coming soon about how existing t:slim X2 insulin pump users can update their software.
