Today I received a mail from Ypsomed (distributor for Omnipod in Europe)
The text was in dutch and I used Google to translate it.
Dear user of the mylife OmniPod insulin pump system,
2nd generation mylife OmniPod
As you may know we will soon introduce a new version of the mylife OmniPod, the 2nd generation mylife OmniPod. The 2nd generation Pod is 34% smaller and 25% lighter than your current Pod! The Pod is flatter, narrower and shorter and can still contain up to 200 units of insulin.
This POD also includes a new PDM. The PDM is similar in size and shape similar to your current PDM but is black in color and has a greater communication range.
Each mylife OmniPod user is automatically eligible for this 2nd generation mylife OmniPod.
Our planning was the 2nd generation mylife OmniPod to introduce this quarter. This week however, we have our headquarters learned that the new Pods available two months later than planned. This means that the 2nd generation Pod after the summer break in September, is available from your supplier.
Because the second-generation Pods only in combination with the generation of the second PDM may be used, we will all mylife OmniPod users already the next few months of this new PDM provided. You will receive personal message when and how to get your 2nd generation PDM gets in your possession.
To ensure a smooth transition to the 2nd generation mylife OmniPod we ask you to ensure the current Pods as your supplier that you order at least until early september sufficient stock. Keep track of your order, you consider your holiday.
We trust you with this information service. If you have questions, we are happy to assist you.
