Medtronic has a variety of infusion sets to meet individual needs. 

An infusion set includes the thin plastic tubing that delivers insulin from the pump to the body. This tubing comes in different lengths to accommodate various needs. At the end of the tubing is either a soft, flexible cannula, or a stainless steel needle. The cannula, which is a small, tapered tube, is inserted under the skin in a spot such as the abdomen, thigh or buttocks. This spot is called the infusion site, and the infusion set remains in place for up to 2-3 days for most set types, and up to 7 days for the Extended infusion set.
