A Two-Part Insulin Management System
The Omnipod® Insulin Management System is insulin delivery that is comfortable to wear and simple to use.
The Pod is a small device that you fill with insulin and wear directly on your body.
It's durable, waterproof1 exterior shell houses a built-in 200-unit insulin reservoir, angled infusion set, hands-free canulla inserter, delivery mechanism and power supply. A latex-free adhesive helps the Pod stay put 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.
The Pod delivers precise, personalized doses of insulin into your body based on the set and variable rates that you program into a handheld Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM).
The Pod communicates wirelessly with the Personal Diabetes Manager to program insulin delivery.
Unlike traditional insulin pumps that require tubing, the Pod can be worn comfortably and discreetly under your clothes while carrying the PDM separately in a backpack or purse3. Unlike users of other insulin pumps, you’ll never have to worry about snagging, tangling, or feeling tethered by tubing.
The Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM)
The handheld Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) wirelessly manages your insulin delivery based on your settings that you program.
Its 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 meter (BGM).
You can use the built-in FreeStyle blood glucose meter (BGM) to check your blood glucose levels as often as needed.
The information from your Personal Diabetes Manager can be uploaded directly to diasend®, our comprehensive data management software partner.
Accessible both online and in many clinics across Canada, diasend stores your blood glucose, insulin, and carb data, as well as information from your blood glucose meter (BGM), continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and fitness tracker. diasend’s clear reports and charts give you the information you and your HCP need to make better insulin therapy decisions.
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 2. Apply the Pod.
Place your Pod almost anywhere you would give yourself an injection.
Step 3. Press Start.
The hands-free cannula inserts automatically and insulin delivery begins at the touch of a button.
- The Pod has a waterproof IP28 rating for up to 7.6 meters (25 feet) for 60 minutes. This means that the Pod can be kept at a depth of 7.6 meters (25 feet) underwater for 60 minutes. The PDM is not waterproof.
- Up to 72 hours of insulin delivery. At start-up, the Pod and Personal Diabetes Manager must be adjacent. During normal operation, the Personal Diabetes Manager must be within 1.5 meters (5 feet) of the Pod.
