Avoiding Highs and Lows

Simple with few steps. Patch is replaced every 72-hours with a fixed rate of continuous rapid-acting insulin. 

Easy Insulin Dosing

Modifiable. The pod is available in seven different pre-programmed daily rates, ranging between ten and 40 units a day.

Fewer Fingersticks

Frequent finger-sticks are required.


Hideable. Bulkier patch pump, but not as noticeable as injections.
