Brief Summary:

The aim of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of a Rule-based Closed Loop system, using subcutaneous way, for the overnight and prandial glucose control in type 1 diabetic subjects. Ten subjects will be enrolled and they will participate in a cross-over study with a control night, using their usual insulin pump pattern, and with a experimental night, being controlled for the closed loop system. Each night includes the overnight control and prandial control of the breakfast.

The system proposes an insulin dose every 5 minutes according with the value of glucose displayed by the continuous glucose monitoring system.
