The purpose of this study is to confirm the safety and effectiveness of the MiniMed 780G insulin pump used in combination with the DS5 CGM in type 1 diabetes adult and pediatric subjects in a home setting.

Official Title

Safety and Effectiveness Evaluation of the MiniMed™ 780G System Used in Combination With the DS5 CGM


This study is a multi-center, single arm study in insulin-requiring adult and pediatric subjects with type 1 diabetes on the MiniMed 780G system using DS5 as well as Medtronic Extended infusion set and reservoir. The run-in period and study period will be approximately 120 days long.
