MiniMed® 640G System
MiniMed® Paradigm™ Veo
Why it’s important
Automatically suspends insulin
To help guard you against hypoglycaemic events.
SmartGuard™ automatically suspends insulin delivery before your sensor value reaches a preset low limit, and you don't respond to alerts.2 You can set up to 8 low thresholds per day. Insulin delivery can be suspended for between 30 mins and 2 hours.
The pump's Low Glucose Suspend feature stops insulin delivery when your sensor value reaches a preset low limit.
Make adjustments ahead of time
Predictive alerts notify you before you go high or low, so you can take action sooner. Set your alert to audio or vibrate. Both can occur simultaneously on the MiniMed 640G.
Active, ongoing insulin tracking
Assisting you to accurately calculate and prevent overlapping boluses
Active insulin from food and correction boluses3 is tracked – even during battery changes.
Customisable basal patterns
So you can meet your individual daily, weekly, or monthly needs
The pump has 8 basal patterns for increased customisation.
The pump has 3 basal patterns to choose from.
Temporary basal pattern preset
So you can immediately create a short-term change to your basal insulin
Flexible bolus options
So you can experience greater convenience and customisation
The pump's bolus delivery speed is adjustable: 1.5 U/min (standard speed) or 15 U/min (quick speed).
The bolus delivery speed is fixed at 1.5 U/min. The pump has no present bolus values.

The pump automatically stores 10 hours of missed glucose readings.
The pump automatically stores 40 minutes of missed glucose readings.
