    I think the Pumpie is a great idea. I regularly disconnect for showers, but I would much prefer to maintain the constant infusion. I used to use soap holder things for my pump, but my pump would easily fall off and hit the hard tub. The Pumpie would greatly reduce bathtub-related incidents.

    I don’t think the tubing sticking out of the bottom would be a big problem. Considering gravity, the water would drip down, but not get inside.

    Well, kind of “eh” to all three. One, I think Pumpie makes no sense as a name and I don’t understand how long a shower people are taking that a short break from the pump is going to be a huge detriment to health. I guess I have had times when I’m ready to shower and a square bolus is still going… That would be the only case I could see.

    The second concept is an excellent idea, but I think the judges are right – this would be good for friends that you could kind of educate in advance but strangers would have no clue. Besides, you’d have to remember to keep it updated with fresh insulin, unless it can remotely access a pump. The last idea – I was with it up until the CGM being connected to the device. That’s getting a little too Big Brother to me.
