Unlike traditional tubed pumps, the Omnipod System does not use tubing. The system includes a Pod that is worn for up to three days (72 hours) and a personal diabetes manager (PDM) with color touch screen that controls the Pod’s functions via Bluetooth. The PDM communicates via Bluetooth and users can also manually enter blood sugar (blood glucose) readings from continuous glucose monitors (CGM) of their choice. The PDM is available in English and Spanish. The Omnipod Display app allows users to view PDM data on their smartphones and the View app allows users to share their insulin data remotely with up to 12 people. The Pod must be within five feet of the PDM to deliver bolus insulin doses. The Pod delivers basal insulin regardless of how close it is to the PDM. The PDM features a built-in CalorieKing food library with more than 80,000 foods and beverages (English only), stores up to 50 preset carb values, and has a zero basal setting.
