Is Omnipod® Right For Me?

A bit about insulin pump therapy

An insulin pump is a device that delivers insulin in place of multiple daily injections.

A continuous amount of short acting insulin is delivered 24 hours a day through a cannula placed under the skin. This is known as basal insulin, but it’s sometimes called background insulin.

Additional insulin is delivered for meals and blood glucose corrections - these are known as bolus doses.

There is more than one type of insulin pump.

"My favourite thing is it's tubeless but also it's so discreet. It's made diabetes less of a chore."

Why Omnipod?

Omnipod was created out of a father’s mission to free his son from the burden of multiple daily injections. Our mission to simplify life for those living with type 1 diabetes remains.

From parents frustrated by the need to deliver frequent injections, to adults who’ve written off insulin pumps altogether, Omnipod can simplify life with up to three days (up to 72 hours) of continuous, tubeless insulin delivery, with no need for multiple daily injections.

  • Discreet: The Pod is small enough to be worn under clothing, with no tubing.
  • Convenient: Deliver bolus insulin with just a few fingertaps using the wireless Controller (Omnipod® 5) or Personal Diabetes Manager (Omnipod DASH®).
  • Simplified: The built-in Bolus Calculator reduces mealtime maths.
  • Waterproof: The Pod can be worn in the shower, swimming pool or sea.

We have two systems. Our Omnipod DASH® system and our next generation automated insulin delivery (AID) system, Omnipod® 5. Omnipod 5 is the first and only tubeless automated insulin delivery system that works with the leading sensor brands*.

Pod Therapy is insulin pump therapy, but not as you know it!

‡ The Pod has a waterproof IP28 rating for up to 7.6 metres for 60 minutes. The PDM/Controller is not waterproof.
* For automated mode requires Dexcom G6 or FreeStyle Libre 2 Plus sensor. Bolus for meals and corrections are still needed.

In a survey, 97% of Omnipod® users in the US said that they would recommend it to a friend

SOURCE: In a November 2019 Insulet survey of 2,481 Omnipod DASH® and Omnipod® System users in the US, 97% of respondents, if given the opportunity, would recommend the Omnipod System to a friend or colleague. Insulet data on file.
