Pump therapy designed to make managing diabetes easier.
The world’s first tubing-free insulin pump, the OmniPod System, is designed to make managing diabetes easier. It’s made up of just two easy-to-use parts: the Pod and the PDM (Personal Diabetes Manager). The small, lightweight Pod holds and delivers your insulin. The handheld PDM programs your insulin delivery and has a convenient, built-in blood glucose meter. It really is that simple.
Here's what it means to you:
Freedom from strict schedules.Sleep late on the weekends, exercise spontaneously and have more freedom to eat what you want, when you want.
No painful injections. No needles to handle.Just one quick insertion every few days covers your insulin delivery. You simply push a button on your PDM and the Pod inserts itself automatically. Insertion is quick and virtually pain-free, with no needles in sight.
Fewest parts to manage.Convenient, easy-to-use two-part design: a wearable Pod and a PDM with a built-in blood glucose meter.
Be more discreet with insulin delivery.You can wear the small Pod anywhere on your body that you’d normally give an injection. There’s no need to wear anything on your belt like other insulin pumps and you have many placement options beyond just your abdomen, so it’s more discreet. You can carry the PDM in your pocket, handbag or backpack.
Jump right in.Wear the Pod in the shower, the tub, the pool and the ocean—without ever having to disconnect or disrupt your insulin delivery.
Like insulin delivery from a healthy pancreas.Pump therapy offers far better control than injections: insulin pumps significantly reduce highs and lows, dramatically decreasing the risk of diabetic complications.1-2 Maybe that’s why people on pump therapy are more satisfied with their therapy, enjoy greater flexibility and worry less about hypoglycemia than people on injections. 3
