OmniPod Insulin Pump Management System
Omnipod Insulin Management System provides up to 3 days of non-stop insulin management without daily injections. Its insulin pump system lets you manage insulin delivery simply and discreetly. Read answers to frequently asked questions.
From the Massachusetts-based medical device company Insulet Corporation, the Omnipod line of insulin delivery systems offers a fresh approach for insulin management to people with diabetes. US MED sells the Insulet Omnipod and Insulet Omnipod DASH systems, both of which utilize tubeless, waterproof “Pods” for insulin delivery.
Diabetes management doesn’t have to be a chore when you’re using the Omnipod insulin pump! The system’s internal reservoir, pumping components, and insertion components are all included in a small, wearable “Pod.”
Insulin Without The Hassle
The Omnipod system is capable of delivering insulin without the use of shots or tubing.
Manage Your Diabetes
With the Personal Diabetes Manager, you’ll be able to check your glucose levels and review your records.
Dive Right In
The Pod can go as deep as 25 feet underwater for up to an hour - you won’t have to remove it before swimming or showering.
A Wearable Device You’ll Forget You’re Wearing
Your Pod will weigh just 0.88 oz. (not including insulin).
Insulet Omnipod DASH
