Diabetics who need insulin are best treated with insulin pumps. However, many young diabetics choose not to use pumps. This study was based on a survey with young diabetics (13-29 years), with the objective to elicit user requirements from users and non-users of insulin pumps. The result showed that difficulties with wearing the pump in daily life were the main reason for not using it. The users prefer a small, easy handled pump, which is comfortable to wear, especially during physical activities and with tight cloths. If insulin pumps are designed with focus on attracting young non- users, the existing users will also gain benefits
