Omnipod® for children

Get Started

Caring for a child with diabetes isn’t easy. You want to choose an insulin delivery method that could meet your child’s evolving health needs, while also granting them the freedom of being a child.

Omnipod works with you and your child to do just that. With no multiple daily injections and no tubes, Pod therapy is insulin pump therapy - simplified.

Please note that only your child's diabetes healthcare professional can assess their suitability for Omnipod.

The benefits of Omnipod

No multiple daily injections, and no tubes: Each tubeless, wearable Pod delivers insulin for up to three days (72 hours). Your child can go to a dance class or play video games with fewer interruptions.

Waterproof†: The Pod can be worn while swimming, bathing, or showering.

Discreet: Small enough to be worn under clothing, with no tubes hanging loose.

†The Pod has a waterproof IP28 rating for up to 7.6 metres for 60 minutes. The PDM/Controller is not waterproof.
*At start-up, the Pod and Controller / Personal Diabetes Manager must be adjacent and touching. During normal operation, the Personal Diabetes Manager must be within 1.5 metres of the Pod.

How does the Omnipod work?

Like traditional insulin pumps, Omnipod replaces the need for daily insulin injections by delivering small doses of insulin to your child’s body steadily throughout the day. Omnipod differs from other insulin pump products with its innovative, compact, and tubeless design, made for you and your child’s busy lives.
