Patient Considerations


Free of tubing. Pods do not have tubes like traditional insulin pumps, allowing for more freedom of movement.

Active Lifestyle

WaterproofPod is waterproof for up to 25 feet deep for 60 minutes. The PDM is not waterproof and must be charged daily. 

Avoiding Highs and Lows

Personalized dosing. Pods can deliver personalized doses of rapid-acting insulin based on the rates programmed into the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) device. The ability to set zero basal rates is not available. 

Easy to Use

Fewer parts. The PDM has button navigation. Pod has fewer parts than tubed pumps.

Easy Insulin Dosing

Customizable dosing. Basal and Bolus in 0.05 increments. No interruption in insulin delivery (pods stay on during bathing and swimming). 

Fewer Fingersticks

Frequent finger-sticks are required. 


Somewhat discreet. The pod attaches directly to the body with no tubing, but the pod is bigger than an infusion set. Pod does not have vibrate option.
