The future of Omnipod.
Please keep in mind that she was pretty clear that dates were vague at best and that she was making no promises.
The 40% smaller pod would be out at the end of 2010. Most likely, Nov. Dec. Maybe beginning of 2011.
In the summer of 2010, the dexcom CGM sensors would marry to the omnipod receiver so that there would be only 1 monitor to carry. She wasn’t sure if it would be a software upgrade to the hand held or a $149 upgrade charge for a new one.
There is a big debate over the “artificial pancreas” theory. Those claiming that soon will have a single insertion device for both functions of delivery and monitoring are false. The main setback is the accuracy of a glucose measurement so close to the delivery site. (mini med tried to tell us they were a year out for this step!)
Probably all info you already know. She says that she works directly with the engineers and the development department. Who knows.
