We have posted 2 videos on YouTube, here is one of them. It will give you some background and some additional pictures of the belt. We have gotten so much positive feedback in regards to how it works. We are encouraged everyday with what people have to say about the belt. It has changed the way we think and feel about wearing and using the insulin pump. Keeping it positive.

It was on a Sunday, a beautiful day in late November 2008. Tally had gotten her insulin pump several weeks before. I walked out in to the yard and Tally was jumping on her trampoline and she was holding the pump against her body so it would not bounce around. I stood there and watched and I thought how awful it was that my daughter had been diagnosed with this disease and wished it would go away....

It amazes me that there has never been anything designed to carry the insulin pump comfortably. When my daughter was put on her insulin pump November 2008 a plastic clip was given with the pump. We tried to wear it but, she is very active and it was getting caught on lots of things. So then we tried 3 or 4 other clips and none really worked. So we started working on the tummietote belt....more to come.
tally's blood glucose numbers have been in range for sometime now....and we will be celebrating her 11th birthday soon...her future is so bright. please donate to www.jdrf. org to help speed the process to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.

When we started tallygear we were a little green around the ears...actually we still are. We were in a HURRY to get a website up and running. Although that took much longer than expected also. But realized in the last several months that we are in desperate need for a more workable website. It's being created as we speak and we will have a seperate address from tallygear but, the two will be linked. It will be called www.insulinpumppack.com the shopping cart will be updated so it actually works and we will have the actual waist sizes listed, to eleviate the question? what sizes do they actually fit.....and we will be adding several new designs. we hope you will come check it out.

we were contacted by a group in Cincinnati, Ohio...www.familieslivingwithdiabetes.com they had several families who had purchased our tummietote by tallygear and had alot of great reviews about the tummietote. The President/Founder Lora Melin contacted me in regards to promoting the belt at their annual diabetes expo on January 10, 2010. So the belt can be seen there today. check out there website for additional details regarding the expo.
We are a company dedicated to making wearing an insulin pump more comfortable, fun & fashionable. here is one of our many designs worn by my daughter tallia ( who inspired the creation of the belt).
The belt is made of soft spandex material and it has a 6" adjustable velcro closure with 3 pockets. One to carry your pump, the other a cellphone and the 3rd snack or small test kit. check it out.
