Looping

Looping refers to an open and transparent effort to make safe and effective basic closed loop technology widely available to reduce the burden of Type 1 diabetes. The members in our diabetes community (Type 1s and parents of Type 1s) are not willing to wait for an approved solution and instead are using Loop. The system is not something that you can purchase from a manufacturer but a system that requires work to install, support to use and equipment to purchase. If you want a perfect system, this is not for you.
Learn more about looping here from those in the community who are already running their own loop … and check out the Facebook group, Looped, for more knowledge.
