YHAOOOOOOO! This is great news for people living with Diabetes in Europe and around the globe! Now, OmniPod – the wireless Insulin Management System has been approved in the EU.

here’s some what this device is all about:

No tubing — means no insulin disruption from disconnecting, snagging, or kinking, plus the freedom to move, dress, bathe, and sleep as your patients please
Automated cannula insertion — minimizes insertion errors and variability in insertion angle and depth while reducing anxiety related to the insertion process
Integrated blood glucose meter — eliminates the need for patients to transfer blood glucose test results from one device to another
Fully integrated design — means there are no separate infusion sets, inserters, insulin reservoirs or blood glucose meters to learn, manage, and carry; Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) can be carried easily in a pocket, purse, backpack, or briefcase, enhancing your patients’ discretion and privacy
Innovative, intuitive user interface — is easy to learn and use; significantly reduces training time so you and your patients can focus on what’s important
Data storage all in one place — PDM stores insulin delivery, blood glucose readings, and carbohydrate records putting your patients’ progress at your fingertips” –Michael, Medgadget
