Delivers Insulin: An Insulin pump is a device that holds Insulin in a resevoir and delivers it to the body via a small needle placed, often in the fatty tissue of the abdomen. Insulin is pumped at a rate set by the doctor/patient to provide a continuous flow of insulin. Often the patient will press a button to deliver a slightly larger dose of Insulin at mealtimes. The devices are getting smaller all the time.
