Slimmer, smaller, neater

Ypsomed’s Omnipod was the first ‘patch’ pump in the UK. A patch pump has no tubing connecting the handheld device to the pump — instructions are sent wirelessly to the pump which is actually on the body, in this case in the shape of a small pod that contains an insulin reservoir. The latest innovation to this futuristic device is a smaller pod, making for a less noticable device being attached to the body.

The new pod is  34% smaller, 16% thinner and 25% lighter – but still features a 200-unit reservoir.

Putting the pod on is automated and virtually pain-free.op2_pdm and pod_box_en The pod is waterproof and the handheld unit (or PDM — your personnal diabetes manager) doubles up as a blood test meter. The large screen displays test results, bolus and basal histories and displays information in graphs, if you prefer that method of analysis.
