Please contact your provider to find out if they are prescribing the Bigfoot Unity System.


Purpose of Study: The goal of this voluntary study is to collect real-world experiences and data from participants who are prescribed and using the Bigfoot Unity System.

In addition to the regular use of the Bigfoot Unity System, participants will be asked to:

  • Complete an initial electronic consent.
  • Collect your blood samples by finger stick at home with provided A1C kits and answer additional questions electronically:
    • At the beginning of the study
    • After three months
    • After six months
  • Complete a safety survey every two weeks on your diabetes management and report if any serious events (such as hospitalization) have occurred.

  • Have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
  • Have been prescribed Bigfoot Unity and not used the system for more than two weeks.
  • Use insulin that is compatible with Bigfoot Unity.

Participants may not:

  • Be pregnant, or plan on becoming pregnant during the next 6 months.
  • Have an implantable medical device, such as a pacemaker.
