FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Smiths Medical MD begins shipping CozMoreTM Insulin Technology System
St. Paul, MN, August 31, 2004 - Smiths Medical MD, Inc. announces that they are now shipping the CozMoreTM Insulin Technology System. The new system includes the Deltec® Cozmo insulin pump, CoZmonitorTM blood glucose module which attaches to the back of the Deltec Cozmo® insulin pump to create an "all-in-one" insulin pump and blood glucose monitoring system1, and the CoZmanagerTM PC communications software.
The Deltec Cozmo® insulin pump received an overwhelming response when it was introduced by Smiths Medical in December 2002. Since then, over 10,000 Deltec Cozmo® insulin pumps have been sold to people with diabetes. Now Smiths Medical is offering insulin pump therapy, blood glucose monitoring, and personalized data management all in one product with the CozMoreTM system. People with diabetes will no longer have to carry a separate monitor for blood glucose testing.
All existing Deltec® Cozmo insulin pumps can be upgraded to the CozMoreTM Insulin Technology System free of charge. The pumps can be upgraded in the field without returning them to Smiths Medical. No other insulin pump on the market offers this technology.
Smiths Medical is the leader in introducing advanced technology into the insulin pump market, which had reached a plateau prior to Smiths Medical entering the market. Smiths Medical was the first company to introduce a smart insulin pump, upgrade insulin pump software in the field, and attach a blood glucose monitor to an insulin pump. "People with insulin dependent diabetes require advanced technology for optimal insulin management and we are proud to be leading the way," said Rod Kellogg, Vice President and General Manager of the Diabetes Division of Smiths Medical MD, Inc.
