An Innovative Approach to Continuous Insulin Delivery
The Omnipod® System provides all the benefits of insulin pump therapy while providing more flexibility and freedom than other traditional tubed pumps.
Customizable insulin delivery settings to give you what you need, when you need it.
Insulin pumps work by continuously delivering insulin at set and variable rates, mimicking the insulin release of a healthy pancreas. The Omnipod® System delivers insulin in two ways:
- Basal rate: A small, constant supply of insulin is delivered automatically at a personalized, preset rate around the clock.
- Bolus: Additional doses of insulin can be delivered when you need them, either around mealtime or to correct high blood glucose.
The Pod can be worn out of sight, under your clothing, and can be applied to your body almost anyplace where you could receive an injection. But you can forget needles and pens because the Pod lets you skip the distress and inconvenience of 4 to 5 injections per day. Instead, every three days, you apply a Pod featuring an insulin-providing canula that inserts automatically in 1/200th of a second with the press of a button on your PDM.
The Omnipod® System has changed the lives of individuals with diabetes across the globe, and we’re not stopping there. We continue to harness medical, scientific, and technological advances to reduce the burden of diabetes management for everyone with insulin-requiring diabetes.
The Pod is a small, waterproof1 device that you fill with insulin and wear directly on your body.
Its durable, waterproof1 exterior shell houses a built-in 200-unit insulin reservoir, angled infusion set, automatic inserter, delivery mechanism and power supply. You can place the Pod anywhere you’d normally give yourself an injection for up to 3 days2 of nonstop insulin delivery.
The Pod includes a small, flexible cannula that inserts automatically with the push of a button.
Simply press a button on the Personal Diabetes Manager, and the Pod automatically inserts the cannula beneath the skin, virtually pain-free. It delivers precise, personalized doses of insulin into your body based on the set and variable rates that you program into its handheld companion, the Personal Diabetes Manager.
The Pod communicates wirelessly3 with the Personal Diabetes Manager to program insulin delivery.
You can wear the Pod comfortably and discreetly under your clothes while carrying the Personal Diabetes Manager separately in a backpack or purse. The Personal Diabetes Manager needs to be within 5 feet of the Pod to deliver a bolus, but does not need to be kept in proximity for basal insulin delivery2 after activation.
The Personal Diabetes Manager
The handheld Personal Diabetes Manager wirelessly3 manages your insulin delivery based on your settings that you program.
Its extensive food library with carbohydrate counts, suggested bolus calculator, built-in FreeStyle blood glucose (BG) meter, and intuitive prompts like “Are you going to eat now?” simplify insulin delivery.
The Personal Diabetes Manager has a built-in FreeStyle blood glucose (BG) meter.
You can use the built-in FreeStyle blood glucose meter to check your blood glucose levels as often as needed.
The information from your Personal Diabetes Manager can be uploaded directly to Insulet Provided Glooko, our comprehensive data management software.
Insulet Provided Glooko automatically allows Omnipod® users to upload pump, BG meter, continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and fitness data and makes the data easily accessible from anywhere.
Make diabetes a smaller part of your life.
When you wake up every morning to another day of diabetes, it's good to know that you have the Omnipod® System to help you get through it. With a little less difficulty and stress. And some level of freedom from all the challenges that diabetes throws at you.
The Omnipod® System consists of a tubeless, waterproof1 insulin pump—we call it a Pod— that supplies insulin to your body continuously. You control the amount and flow rate of insulin through a wireless device, your Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM). Because your PDM communicates wirelessly to a Pod that contains up to 72 hours of insulin, there are no wires or tubes to contend with.
Three Simple Steps to Insulin Delivery
Step 1. Fill the Pod.
The Pod automatically primes itself and performs a series of safety checks to prepare for insulin delivery.
Step 3. Press Start.
The cannula inserts automatically and insulin delivery begins at the touch of a button.
- The Pod has a waterproof IP28 rating for up to 25 feet for 60 minutes. The Personal Diabetes Manager is not waterproof.
- Up to 72 hours of insulin delivery
- At start-up, the Pod and Personal Diabetes Manager must be adjacent and touching. During normal operation, the Personal Diabetes Manager must be within 5 feet of the Pod.
