The Omnipod System uses a tubeless, waterproof patch-pump technology that offers patients significant quality of life benefits, eliminating the burden associated with multiple daily injections and the complexity associated with traditional tubed pumps. The differentiated design provides up to 72 hours of non-stop, discreet insulin delivery, and more choice for site selection.
