So… How does it work?
Kaleido comes with two small, rechargeable pumps. This way, one can be on charge while you’re using the other. Each pump lasts for three days so when it comes to change-over time you’ll always have a back up, and you’ll never be caught short.
Your handset is all you need to control the Kaleido system, and it’s rechargeable just like your pumps. You’ll use your handset to make any changes to your pump setup (it’s your best bud!), so it’s easy to navigate and looks pretty good too.
Lastly, there’s the disposable parts. This is the stuff you need to get pumping, so that’s our 200 unit insulin cartridges, our 9mm or 6mm infusion sets and our hook and loop body patches for those of you who want to go patch pump style.
Designed for you
Wear Kaleido your way
With our pump and body patches, you can wear Kaleido wherever it suits. Two tubing lengths mean no site is off limits, so you can change things up more often and wear whatever outfit is calling to you from the wardrobe! Our users’ favourites? Arms, tummies, lower backs, bums and legs – how about you?
To patch or not to patch?
Kaleido combines the freedom of a patch pump with the versatility of a conventional pump. Keep it close with our hook and loop patches (it won’t budge) and the short 5cm tubing, or slip it into your pocket with the long 30cm tubing. Unlike other patch pumps, Kaleido doesn’t get thrown away. Your pump, your way, and less waste.
Let’s inject some colour
Gold, blue, pink, orange… Pick the colours you want for your pumps and handset - we’ve got 10 options, so you can go uniform or pick three different ones!
We know that life comes with lots of twists and turns, so Kaleido is multitalented, to help you roll with the punches. There’s Kaleidoculator to help you with your boluses, temporary basal rates to fit your lifestyle (whether that’s an adjustment for your yoga class or a strategy when things aren’t quite right), along with our unique customisable ratios and basal rates to match your body clock, 24/7!
BG, your way
Whatever you use to monitor your blood glucose, it’s easy to record your readings on your Kaleido handset – whether that’s a standard meter, CGM or flash meter. Kaleido will slide right into your day-to-day, so you don’t have to compromise on what works for you. And if you fancy a little more info, just upload your data to Glooko+diasend® for a full report.
Kaleido comes with 6 or 9mm straight Teflon cannulas, so, with a little help from your Healthcare provider you can choose what works for you. We’ve also designed an intuitive inserter to make set change days a breeze.
Incredibly small and perfectly formed
Kaleido pumps and handsets are the smallest around. Our pump is so compact and light you might even forget you’re connected, even with 200 units packed in. Show yours off or tuck it out of sight, Kaleido gives you the option to do what suits you.
Your pump and handset use a secure Bluetooth® Low Energy channel to connect, which means hassle free, discreet insulin delivery, round the clock.
Simple to use, wear and understand
We’ve designed the Kaleido handset to be simple to use and quick to navigate, because – spoiler alert! – good design makes a difference! So, you need to bolus? That’s just a couple of clicks. Basal rate adjustment? A few seconds. We don’t want to slow you down (we’re enjoying the ride!), so our handset makes it easy to sort stuff out on the go.
Infusion set placement
Changing your infusion set isn’t a fun job, but it can be quick and easy. We’ve designed our Kaleido infusion set inserter so all you need to do is load it up, peel off the paper, and place it where you want it!
Filling insulin cartridges
Our 200 unit insulin cartridges are filled and primed in one go. Once they’re filled, just click the cartridge into place, no fuss!
Kaleido delivers insulin in a revolutionary way. Our one-of-a-kind system works with micro pulse delivery, which means you’ll get insulin pumping that’s accurate, consistent and reliable with every single dose. One less thing to worry about!
We couldn’t bear the thought of Kaleido being thrown away, so we’ve made our pumps and handsets fully rechargeable within 2 hours. That’s better for the environment and more convenient for you. Goodbye disposable batteries, hello Kaleido!
Our pumps are waterproof in up to one metre for up to one hour.
Fill your Kaleido insulin cartridge with 200 units of fast acting insulin - NovoRapid® or Humalog®.
Three days of use
With normal use, your pump battery will last over three days… easy!
Your handset stores up to 90 days of data, all downloadable via Glooko+diasend®
