    Hello, I would recommend checking with your pump manufacturer, ring their helpline. I have a powerplate type of workout machine and I disconnect prior to use (max duration of 20 mins) just to be safe!

    Agree with Poppy about checking with your pump manufacturer, you may also want to check the instruction manual to see if this device is safe for people with diabetes to use, if in doubt check with your HCP's.
