Think about less worry over your child’s diabetes management – and more time spent watching them be a kid. With the Omnipod® System, YOU CAN. The Omnipod® System is an easy-to-use, two-part insulin pump designed to help make managing and living with diabetes easier for the child in your care:
The Small, Tubing-Free Pod
• Delivers insulin based on your child’s personalized settings.
• Adheres securely to most places you’d give an injection.
• Insertion is automatic and virtually pain-free – with no needles in sight.
• Waterproof* so there’s no need to disconnect for bathing or swimming.
The Handheld PDM
• Simple, intuitive sentences walk your child through every step.
• Can be stored in your child’s pocket, backpack or purse – no need to clip anything to your their clothing.
• Built-in blood glucose meter means one less things to carry.
• Insulin on board (IOB) is calculated based on correction and meal boluses.
Give your child a chance to feel what it’s like to wear the Omnipod® System.
