MyLife Omnipod

The Omnipod is a tubeless insulin pump

combining a handheld device and an onthe-body 'pod'

which stores and delivers

insulin. The pod stays on the body taking

instructions from a handheld device

(personal diabetes manager, or PDM)

via remote control. There is no need to

disconnect the pod for any activities,

including swimming. Pods are inserted at

the push of a button so users need not

see or handle a needle. The PDM is used

MyLife Ypsopump

New on the scene is the mylife YpsoPump.

This new little pump, only just being

introducing to the UK by Ypsomed (the

company behind the Omnipod brand in

Europe), features the essential functions

for easy use. It has an icon-based

touchscreen for intuitive operation and is

a small (78mm x46mm x16mm) and lightweight (around

80g) device for discreet

and comfortable wearing. It uses prefilled cartridges

for quick and convenient

changes and includes Bluetooth

integration for wireless connection to the

mylife Software and mylife App. Being

small and lightweight with only essential

functions, this pump requires little training,

being easy to operate. The icon-based

menu allows for intuitive operation via an

OLED touchscreen (41mm x16mm). It

can handle immersion in water to a depth

of 1m for up to 60 minutes.

to set basal and bolus rates via a colour

screen and can be carried in a pocket,

backpack, or handbag. The system has

a built-in FreeStyle blood glucose meter

-- so one less thing to have to take with

you (though you'll need a finger pricker

and tub of sensors). The pod itself is

waterproof up to 7.6meters for up to 60-

minutes, however the PDM is not.
