Tubeless Pod Therapy lets kids be kids.

Caring for a child with diabetes is an important job. As a caregiver, you want to choose an insulin delivery method that both addresses your child’s evolving health needs while also granting him or her the freedom to just be a kid. And there is a lot to juggle—concerns about your child’s health, worries that you might not be doing everything right, and taking time to make sure you continue to care for yourself. 

Omnipod® was created for this very reason—to give kids with diabetes and their parents and caregivers a simple tool to manage diabetes and deliver peace of mind at the same time. In fact, over the last few years, Omnipod DASH® has become the #1 prescribed insulin delivery system for kids*. Omnipod allows kids to do what kids do, whether at school, at play or at a sleepover.

All freedom, no tubes attached.

Over 100,000 Omnipod users and their families experience the benefits of our tubeless insulin delivery system every day. The Pod is small and discreet, and can be worn almost anywhere you’d give yourself an injection. Omnipod is such a popular insulin delivery system for kids and teens, because of these unique features: 

For kids

  • No multiple daily injections—Omnipod delivers insulin continuously for 3 days (up to 72 hours), so your kid can stick with their activities without interruptions 
  • Tangle-proof—no tubes that will get caught on the jungle gym 
  • Waterproof—can be worn while swimming, bathing, or showering
†The Pod has a waterproof IP28 rating for up to 25 feet for 60 minutes. The controller and PDM are not waterproof.

‡Omnipod 5 is only cleared for use by children 6 years of age or older.

For teens

  • Discreet—small enough to be worn under clothing, with no tubes hanging loose 
  • Built for busy lives—the wireless Omnipod 5 Controller and Omnipod DASH PDM both look like a smartphone and fit in a purse or pocket, making insulin delivery look like sending a text. Plus, Omnipod 5 can be controlled from an app on your own compatible smartphone! See our full list of compatible smartphones.
  • Less mealtime math—the integrated food library reduces the burden of bolus calculations. Perfect for a dine-out with friends! 
  • Durable—ideal for competitive sports and active lifestyles 

How our Omnipod systems 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. Plus, Omnipod 5 Automated Insulin Delivery System now offers automated insulin delivery by connecting with your Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and adjusting your insulin levels every five minutes. 

‡Omnipod 5 is only cleared for use by children 6 years of age or older.

Omnipod systems are simple:

1. The Pod

2. The DASH Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) or the Omnipod 5 Controller and mobile app

3. Omnipod 5 and Dexcom G6 CGM

Omnipod was designed to Simplify Life™

Unlike multiple daily injections or traditional, tubed insulin pumps, Omnipod keeps it simple so you can focus on your kid’s everyday life.
