What is the Omnipod® Insulin Management System?
The two-part Omnipod® System is a tubeless, waterproof1 insulin pump for the management of your insulin-dependent diabetes.
The Omnipod® System’s innovative design is projected to manage your diabetes, with freedom, comfort and convenience. The small, waterproof1 Pod and the handheld Personal Diabetes Manager communicate wirelessly2 to deliver continuous insulin based on your personal settings.
How does the Omnipod® System work?
The Omnipod® Insulin Management System is insulin management 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.
Its durable, waterproof1 exterior shell houses a built-in 200-unit insulin reservoir, angled infusion set, automatic inserter, delivery mechanism and power supply. An adhesive helps the Pod stay put 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.
It delivers precise, personalised doses of insulin into your body based on the set and variable rates that you programme into its wireless companion, the Personal Diabetes Manager.
The Pod communicates wirelessly with the Personal Diabetes Manager to programme insulin delivery.
The Pod can be worn comfortably and discreetly under your clothes while carrying the PDM separately in a backpack or purse3
The Personal Diabetes Manager
The handheld Personal Diabetes Manager wirelessly manages your insulin delivery based on your settings that you programme.
The Personal Diabetes Manager needs to be within 1.5 metres of the Pod to deliver a bolus, but does not need to be kept in proximity for basal insulin delivery after activation.
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 our comprehensive data management software.
Accessible online, Glooko® + diasend® stores your blood glucose, insulin and carb data, as well as information from your BG meter, continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and fitness tracker. Glooko® + diasend's® clear reports and charts give you information to make better decisions about insulin management.
