What is the Omnipod® Insulin Management System?
The two-part Omnipod® System is a tubeless, waterproof1 insulin pump that simplifies the management of your insulin-dependent diabetes.
The Omnipod® System’s innovative design allows you to live your life, and 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 therapy 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 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.
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.
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 purse2. Unlike users of other insulin pumps, you’ll never have to worry about snagging, tangling, or feeling tethered by tubing.
The Personal Diabetes Manager
The handheld Personal Diabetes Manager wirelessly manages your insulin delivery based on your settings that you programme.
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 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 Insulet Provided Glooko, our comprehensive data management software.
Accessible both 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 the information you need to make better decisions about your insulin management.
What makes the Omnipod® System different?
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. Its benefits include:
Customisable 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 communicates wirelessly2 to programme insulin delivery, eliminating the need for cumbersome tubes.
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 1.5 metres of the Pod to deliver a bolus, but does not need to be kept in proximity for basal insulin delivery2 after activation.
3 days of truly continuous insulin delivery3 thanks to its waterproof1 design.
There’s no need to take the Pod off to shower, exercise, or sleep. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about finding a place to hang your insulin pump in the shower or accidentally disconnecting the pump in your sleep.
The cannula inserts automatically with the push of a button, with no needles in sight.
Simply press a button on the Personal Diabetes Manager, and the Pod automatically inserts the cannula beneath the skin, virtually pain-free.
