From Twin Falls, Idaho, USA:
Why are insulin pump manufacturers allowed to use refurbished pumps to satisfy warranty requirements? Do other medical device manufacturers do this?
Without knowing the name of the manufacturer, how far you were into the four year warranty, and why the pump had to be returned, I can only say that it is indeed current practise. Amongst other reasons, it probably saves time over a repair.
