SmartGuard™ Auto Mode

SmartGuard™ is the exclusive technology from Medtronic that mimics some of the functions of a healthy pancreas. Our latest version of SmartGuard™ technology with the MiniMed™ 670G System takes on more tasks of diabetes management than ever before, so you don't have to.


The MiniMed™ 670G system offers SmartGuard™ technology that automatically adjusts insulin delivery every 5 minutes based on your glucose levels to help keep you in a healthy range. More time in range may mean better glucose control with fewer highs and lows, so you can feel healthy and confident focussing on your day, not on your diabetes.

How does SmartGuard™ Auto Mode work?

Your insulin needs vary throughout the day. Traditional pump therapy delivers pre-programmed, fixed basal rates.
As your insulin needs vary throughout the day, it can be very challenging to predict and match unique basal
requirements that are changing on a daily basis.


SmartGuardTM Auto Mode constantly adapts to your real- time glucose needs and may deliver very different basal
rates each day and night – helping you stay in a healthy glucose range2 3
