A few months ago I began the process of looking for new pump (thanks to Cozmo going under) and with much research as well as comments from here I decided to give OmniPod a try.
Without a doubt it was a stressful situation.
As of last week I am an official OmniPod user! I cannot say enough good things about it! The entire concept of not having a wire hanging on me was the selling point and has proven to be just incredible. No more forgetting to plug back in. (eventhough it was a rare instance to do so). Was able to try out for one month before officially signing on which was quite helpful
The PDM is sooooo easy to use: Activating/deactivating a Pod is just so simple and painfree; the font; lighting, makes it all so simple & stressfree and most of all the on hand info you can receive with just the press of a button!
One of the downfalls apparentlly is how easy it falls off I exercise rigorasly 6 days a week. Just returned from Florida when it was 100 degrees …no problems with coming off…thanks to the IV Prep pads.
The Pods are a little big (comparituive to half of an egg) however, certainly much smaller than all of the pumps themselves. They are in process of issuing new, flatter pods. All clothes fit w/o notice.
In regrds to insurance the expense is elevated (about $1500 over 4 yr warrenty) compared to standard pumps but my insurance accepted with out problem.
If your warrenty is soon to expire I recommend you give OmniPod a try.
