What is Omnipod?

Omnipod® gives you more with less

Omnipod provides non-stop insulin delivery through a tubeless, waterproof insulin pump called a Pod—all with no multiple daily injections. Get 3 days (up to 72 hours) of continuous insulin delivery and freedom with these innovative features:

  • Wearable: Place the Pod almost anywhere you’d normally inject
  • Waterproof*: Take your insulin anywhere life takes you, even while swimming
  • Tangle-proof: Forget the tubes of traditional insulin pumps
*The Pod has an IP28 rating for up to 25 feet for 60 minutes. The Personal Diabetes Manager and Controller are not waterproof.

Pod Therapy: the building blocks of Omnipod

Omnipod offers waterproof, concealable insulin management through Pod Therapy. An alternative to traditional insulin pumps, Pod Therapy consists of two primary parts: the tubeless Pod and the handheld Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM), kept nearby to wirelessly program insulin delivery. No multiple daily injections, tubes, or tangles to hold you back.

† The Pod has an IP28 rating for up to 25 feet for 60 minutes. The Personal Diabetes Manager and Controller are not waterproof.

Omnipod® 5:
All systems go

With Omnipod 5 Automated Insulin Delivery System, your diabetes devices are in sync without tubes to tie you down. It’s everything Omnipod users love about DASH—waterproof, wearable, tubeless—and so much more: 

  • SmartAdjust™ technology automatically increases, decreases, or pauses insulin every 5 minutes, based on your customized target—helping to protect against highs and lows, day and night. 1,2 

  • Activity feature when enabled, reduces insulin delivery when glucose typically goes low, like when exercising. 

  • SmartBolus calculator, the only AID system with a built-in bolus calculator that automatically incorporates your CGM data and trend, so you don’t have to. 

You will still need to bolus for meals. With Omnipod 5, this is done with the Omnipod 5 App or Controller. 

†The Pod has an IP28 rating for up to 25 feet for 60 minutes. The Omnipod 5 controller is not waterproof.

‡Omnipod 5 is cleared for people with Type 1 diabetes, 2 years and older.

Omnipod DASH®:
The crowd pleaser

A tubeless, wireless insulin management system that lets you experience more freedom with fewer daily hassles. Wear the Pod for 3 days (up to 72 hours) of continuous insulin delivery, without multiple daily injections. And the convenience doesn’t stop there. Get it all through the pharmacy, with no commitment. Even the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) comes at no charge to you

  • Tubeless: No more tubes tangled on door knobs. The tubeless Pod can be worn discretely without having to clip anything on.  

  • Waterproof*: Wear the Pod in the shower, the ocean, or running in the rain. Just keep the PDM dry. 

  • Integrated Food Library: Remove yourself from the equation with an integrated bolus calculator, presets, and the CalorieKing® library of 80,000+ foods (English only).

A 37-year road to freedom

Clare was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes over 40 years ago. After decades of multiple daily injections, blood glucose swings, and dangerous lows, Omnipod helped her simplify life with diabetes.

I don’t have to spend as much time thinking about diabetes.
