The mylife OmniPod Insulin Management System is a system with just two elements: the Pod and the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM).

The small, compact Pod is the heart of the system, combining an insulin reservoir, infusion set and pump in one unit, which is applied directly onto the skin and supplies you with insulin for up to three days – without tubing, continuously.

The Pod is controlled wirelessly via the PDM, which at the same time also serves as a blood glucose meter and bolus calculator.

1 IPX8: 7.6 meters up to 60 minutes for the Pod. The PDM is not waterproof.

Discover

The first tubing free insulin patch pump

The mylife OmniPod Insulin Management System is a new kind of insulin pump therapy. The Pod is directly attached onto the skin and there is no tubing between the Pod and the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM), which provides more freedom to pump users in daily life.

Small, lightweight and waterproof¹ Pod

Weighing just 25 grams and only 1.45 cm high, the Pod is lightweight and discreet - you will hardly feel that you are wearing an insulin pump. The Pod is waterproof1, so you don't have to think about disconnecting and reconnecting your pump when showering or swimming.

Intuitive and easy to use

Two parts are all you need for insulin pump therapy: The Pod and the PDM. The innovative design of the Pod keeps the start-up steps to a minimum. The PDM guides you easy-to-follow instructions and background information to support you with your therapy.

Automated and virtually pain-free cannula insertion

The PDM guides you step-by-step through the change of a Pod. When you apply the Pod to your body, the automated cannula insertion is activated by pushing a button on the PDM. The virtually pain-free automated insertion ensures the cannula inserts with consistent depth and angle.

Integrated blood glucose meter and bolus calculator

The blood glucose meter is integrated into the PDM to reduce the number of devices you have to carry around. A bolus suggestion can be calculated based on your current BG values.

IPX8: 7.6 meters up to 60 minutes for the Pod. The PDM is not waterproof.
