Whether you're considering insulin pump therapy, or you already wear a traditional pump, the OmniPod insulin pump can make managing your diabetes easier – so it becomes a smaller part of daily living.
With the OmniPod’s advanced insulin pump technology, you can sleep in, eat, exercise and just live your life more easily. So you’re no longer held back by your insulin schedule or tethered by a pump with tubing. The Pod holds and delivers your insulin. The PDM (Personal Diabetes Manager) wirelessly programs your personalized insulin delivery, calculates suggested doses and insulin on board, and has a convenient, built-in FreeStyle® blood glucose meter. It really is that simple.
With the OmniPod’s advanced technology, you can sleep in, exercise, and just live your life more easily. So you’re no longer held back by your insulin schedule or tethered by a pump with tubing.
Just one quick insertion every few days covers your insulin delivery. You just push a button on your PDM and the OmniPod's cannula inserts itself, reducing hassle and chance for human error. Insertion is quick and virtually pain-free.
Just two parts, a wearable Pod and a PDM with a built-in blood glucose meter.
There’s a lot that goes into every little Pod – the insulin reservoir, angled infusion set, automated inserter, pumping mechanism and power supply are all packed in. It even remembers your own basal rates so there’s no need to keep the PDM next to you at all times.
Wear the Pod in the shower, the tub, the pool—the OmniPod wireless, waterproof* insulin pump allows you to do this without ever disrupting your insulin delivery.
You can wear the small, lightweight Pod comfortably wherever you would give an injection – giving you more flexibility and discretion. And there’s no need to wear anything on your belt like other insulin pumps for diabetes. Carry the PDM in your pocket, handbag or backpack. So no one even needs to know you’re wearing an insulin pump. That’s up to you.
Diabetes insulin pump therapy offers far better control than injections: insulin pumps significantly reduce highs and lows, dramatically decreasing the risk of diabetic complications.1-2 Maybe that’s why people on pump therapy are more satisfied with their therapy, enjoy greater flexibility and worry less about hypoglycemia than people on injections.3
*The PDM is not waterproof. The Pod has a waterproof IPX8 rating for up to 25 feet for 60 minutes.
