Our Approach to Innovation
 

We Believe that Innovation is the Key to Simplifying Life for People with Diabetes

People with diabetes make an average of 300 decisions each day1 in managing their condition. Our Goal is to reduce the burden of diabetes care and simplify the user experience. Our Mission is to create insulin delivery that adapts to changing diabetes needs.

Innovation in Every Pod

One small, tubeless and waterproof2 Pod, which is made up of 74 pieces, consistently and accurately delivers insulin for people with diabetes through customizable basal rates and bolus presets.

The Pod holds up to 200 units of rapid-acting U-100 insulin and replaces up to 14 daily injections.3

The Pod includes auto-cannula insertion, that eliminates the necessity of handling the insertion needle, while providing a virtually pain-free path for insulin delivery.

Insulet Product Roadmap

We are dedicated to reducing complexity and making diabetes management simpler. Our ongoing commitment to the diabetes community is our continuous innovation, aiming to continually make products smarter and simpler.

 
 

“The Pod is a revolution in insulin therapy - No tubes, less needle sticks, constant insulin delivery for 3 days - no disconnect. All of these factors improve adherence among people with diabetes and, as a result, dramatically improve clinical outcomes and quality of life.”
