Hello Moderators,

My name is Wout. I am a university student from the Netherlands currently working on a project to develop a carrying solution for people living with diabetes using a tethered insulin pump. I therefore request that I may post a survey where people can voice their perspective. I can send you a link so that you assess if you deem it suitable, but due to me having a new account, I am unable to.
