How Our Wearable Insulin Delivery System Works
The Omnipod DASH® System is an alternative treatment to multiple daily insulin injections by delivering small doses of insulin to your child’s body steadily throughout the day. The Omnipod DASH® System is simple, with just two primary parts:
A small, adhesive-backed disposable device applied anywhere you would give yourself an insulin injection, it can be easily worn under clothing. The Pod’s small, flexible cannula inserts automatically into your child's skin with the push of a button. It delivers precise doses of insulin based on the instructions you program into the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM).
The Personal Diabetes Manager
A hand-held device that puts insulin delivery control at your fingertips. There’s no need to keep the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) with your child at all times – once you activate the Pod, it only needs to be within 1.5 metres of the Pod to deliver a meal time bolus‡. It helps simplify diabetes management with individualised insulin settings.
Please note that only your child's diabetes Healthcare Professional can assess their suitability for the Omnipod® and Omnipod DASH® Insulin Management System.
