MIRAMAR, Fla., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Nipro Diabetes Systems introduces the Amigo(R) Insulin Pump available for the first time to the market. The pump helps control blood glucose for children and adults with types 1 and 2 diabetes. Built for safety, reliability, accuracy and durability, the Amigo is user friendly with computer-like help screens for easy programming. Developed and manufactured in the United Sates by people with diabetes and healthcare professionals who specialize in the disease, the Amigo has been designed around the patient and in response to the ever changing treatment of diabetes.
The Amigo Insulin Pump mimics the pancreas by consistently delivering basal insulin throughout the day and night and allowing the wearer to program bolus insulin whenever needed. It utilizes rapid-acting insulin that is very similar to the insulin produced by the human pancreas. The Amigo is also a smart pump because it is capable of calculating bolus insulin for food and high blood glucose readings through parameters prescribed by the physician and stored in the pump.
The Amigo's 'Life Has No Limits' campaign emphasizes the freedom for people with diabetes to take control of their lives instead of letting the disease control them. No matter what you eat, where you go, or what you do, the Amigo empowers you to participate in a wide variety of activities.
Nipro Diabetes Systems differentiates the Amigo Insulin Pump from other pumps in the market through its dedication to high quality customer service. Certified Diabetes Educators are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer any questions. From education in carbohydrate counting to technical aspects of the Amigo Insulin pump, there is always a 'friend' a phone call way.
Charitable work is also part of Nipro's mission, with a portion of every Amigo sale going to the Kids on the GO Foundation. The charity was created to bring lower income children and their families together with kid-focused diabetes events. The funds will be utilized to help families cover the cost to attend diabetes conferences and camps.
