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 canula (to confirm insertion and flow)
More visible serial numbers
Slightly curved/cushioned (or flexible) bottom of pod for better fit
Ability to customize pod appearance (skins, stickers, color, designs)
Better pod adhesion, more contact points (especially around canula)
Removable reservoir (reduce insulin waste, support higher insulin needs)
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
Vibrate option for alarms on PDM (more discrete)
Rechargeable PDM battery (like cell phone)
Extend distance that PDM and pod can sync
Integrated lancet in PDM (one less thing to carry)
Sunlight readable screen
Waterproof/shockproof PDM option (for outdoor lifestyle)
Smart phone version of PDM (iPhone, Android, etc)
Better form-factor for PDM (smaller, more modern style & features)
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
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)
Upload food counts from a computer
One basal that includes different weekday and weekend settings
In history, display actual bolus instead of suggested
Meal pre-sets for combination/extended boluses
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
Ability to enter carbs eaten to treat a low
Alarm if canula has dislodged
Go right to check BG after BG reminder (remove "ok" step)
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
Quick shut-off for alarms
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.
