Insulin Pump Comparison

     

Compare Insulin Pumps: the OmniPod vs. traditional insulin pumps.

 

Whether you are already using one or just learning about insulin pumps, it’s good to do an insulin pump comparison so you know your options.

 

The world’s first tubing-free system, the OmniPod, delivers all of the benefits of pump therapy while eliminating many of the issues associated with traditional insulin pumps.

 

The OmniPod is discreet and durable. Wireless and waterproof*. And incredibly easy to use. It has just 2 parts: the Pod and the PDM (Personal Diabetes Manager). The Pod holds and delivers your insulin—apply it almost anywhere on your body. The PDM wirelessly programs your personalized insulin delivery, calculates suggested doses and insulin on board, and has a convenient, built-in FreeStyle® blood glucose meter.
