I didn't know there were insulin pumps in ####. What kind of pump was it?

It was called the Auto Syringe or nickname the big black brick. Im sure you can find a picture of it. It ran off of rechargeable nicad batteries.

Almost. That was a later model. The one I started on did not have a screen and the syringe was a long skinny.
