Visual Abstract

Objective: Most insulin infusion sets (ISs) are labeled for 2- or 3-days use. The Medtronic EWIS is designed to increase wear time up to 7 days, and demonstrated a 74.8% survival rate (77.8%, excluding inadvertent early removal) in the pivotal trial ( NCT04113694). This study reports on study participant satisfaction during the EWIS pivotal trial.

Method: This multi-center (15), single-arm, non-randomized, non-inferiority trial in 259 participants (18-80yrs) with T1D using the MiniMed™ 670G system (with Humalog™ or Novolog™ insulin) involved wearing a 2- or 3-day IS for 2 weeks (run-in) followed by 12 consecutive EWIS wears (study phase). The latter was worn for ≥174 hours or until set failure. Participants completed a Medtronic Likert-based questionnaire at baseline and study exit. The averaged paired change in score at study-baseline was determined (Wilcoxon signed-rank test).

Result: Reported satisfaction data during 2- or 3-day IS versus EWIS wear (Figure) show that ease and convenience of use, comfort, wear duration and time required to change a set were significantly improved with EWIS (p<0.001).

Conclusion: These findings point to significantly greater satisfaction with the EWIS when compared with a 2- or 3-day IS, which may result in reduced care burden and improved adherence.
