OmniPod Feature Survey

Welcome to this OmniPod User Group Survey. Our goal is to provide OmniPod maker Insulet with user feedback on potential new features. Note: We do not ask about smaller pods and CGM integration because Insulet is already aggressively working on those features. Survey author: I am a father of a daughter with T1 and I am not otherwise affiliated with Insulet.
1. First, let's look at new features for the Pod.
Here we're looking for insight into trade-offs. Rank the following features in order of importance with a rank of 1 being the most important. You can only enter one feature per rank (i.e. only a single choice for #1, a single choice for #2 etc).
1234567
More visible serial numbers
Removable reservoir (reduce insulin waste, support higher insulin needs)
Ability to customize pod appearance (skins, stickers, color, designs)
Slightly curved/cushioned (or flexible) bottom of pod for better fit
More visible canula (to confirm insertion and flow)
Better pod adhesion, more contact points (especially around canula)
Larger reservoir (for higher insulin needs)
2. Now let's look at the PDM.
Here we're still looking for insight into trade-offs. Rank the following features in order of importance with a rank of 1 being the most important. You can only enter one feature per rank (i.e. only a single choice for #1, a single choice for #2 etc).
12345678
Sunlight readable screen
Better form-factor for PDM (smaller, more modern style & features)
Extend distance that PDM and pod can sync
Integrated lancet in PDM (one less thing to carry)
Smart phone version of PDM (iPhone, Android, etc)
Vibrate option for alarms on PDM (more discrete)
Waterproof/shockproof PDM option (for outdoor lifestyle)
Rechargeable PDM battery (like cell phone)
3. Now we'll look at bolus/basal software.
Here continue to look for insight into trade-offs. Rank the following features in order of importance with a rank of 1 being the most important. You can only enter one feature per rank (i.e. only a single choice for #1, a single choice for #2 etc).
1234567
Meal pre-sets for combination/extended boluses
Bolus from food library by entering amount of item (i.e. grams)
IOB calc option that includes food bolus (similar to other pumps)
Make settings more user-definable (i.e. alarm volume, alarm frequency, extended bolus interval, temp basals, etc)
In history, display actual bolus instead of suggested
One basal that includes different weekday and weekend settings
Upload food counts from a computer
4. And here are some other system changes.
Here we again look for insight into trade-offs. Rank the following features in order of importance with a rank of 1 being the most important. You can only enter one feature per rank (i.e. only a single choice for #1, a single choice for #2 etc).
1234567
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Expand data input to include items such as A1C, Doctor appt, BUN, Creatinine, Cholesterol, etc
Improved data reporting/mining
Alarm if canula has dislodged
Go right to check BG after BG reminder (remove "ok" step)
Quick shut-off for alarms
Ability to enter carbs eaten to treat a low
5. Now let's look at the whole list all together.
This time we're looking for intensity of need. Rate the importance of each of the following features.
