Hybrid Closed-Loop Hotel Studies With Medtronic PID Controller

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT02280863


The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Medtronic hybrid closed-loop (HCL) system utilizing the proportional-integral-derivative algorithm with insulin feedback (PID-IFB) optimized to function in a hybrid mode with closed-loop control operating during the day and night.
