What is the Omnipod® Insulin Management System?
The two-part Omnipod® Insulin Management System is a tubeless, waterproof1 insulin pump that simplifies the management of your insulin-dependent diabetes.
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 and multiple daily injections.
The Omnipod® System communicates wirelessly to program insulin delivery, eliminating the need for tubes.
You can place the Pod anywhere you would give yourself an injection and wear it 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 meters (5 feet) of the Pod to deliver a bolus, but does not need to be kept in proximity for basal insulin delivery after Pod activation.
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
Up to 3 days of truly continuous insulin delivery.
There is no need to take the Pod off to bathe, shower, swim, exercise or sleep
- Worry less about finding a place to hang your insulin pump in the shower at the pool or gym
- Sleep better; no tubes mean less worry about accidentally kinking, tangling or pulling out an infusion set in your sleep
The hands-free cannula inserts automatically with the push of a button, with no needles in sight.
With the simple press of a button on the Personal Diabetes Manager, the cannula inserts automatically beneath the skin, virtually pain-free
Continuous Innovation for the Diabetes Community
The Omnipod® System has changed the lives of over 140,000 individuals across the globe including; thousands of Canadians living with diabetes.
- The Pod has an IP28 rating for up to 7.5 meters (25 feet) for 60 minutes. The Personal Diabetes Manager is not waterproof.
