In brief: Not sure
2 possibilities come to mind.
The 1st is omnipod, an Insulin pump with no tubes. The "pod" that sits on the skin contains a 3-day supply of Insulin and has a catheter to deliver it just under the skin. It's controlled by a handheld gadget that is not connected to the pod. The 2nd possibility is the recently approved glucose monitor, to allow parents to monitor a child's sugar from another room.
