From Phoenix, Arizona, USA:

I am very rowdy at school and I tend to jump around lot. My friends and I jump on each others' backs and just play around. But, I'm getting a pump soon, so I have a problem. How do I keep my cord from getting ripped off, but still mess around and have fun at the same time?


Maybe you should look into the OmniPod, which has no tubing.


Additional comments from Dr. Larry Deeb:

You should be able to tuck in virtually all of the tubing.
