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
Slightly curved/cushioned (or flexible) bottom of pod for better fit
Better pod adhesion, more contact points (especially around canula)
More visible serial numbers
Removable reservoir (reduce insulin waste, support higher insulin needs)
More visible canula (to confirm insertion and flow)
Ability to customize pod appearance (skins, stickers, color, designs)
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
Waterproof/shockproof PDM option (for outdoor lifestyle)
Rechargeable PDM battery (like cell phone)
Better form-factor for PDM (smaller, more modern style & features)
Vibrate option for alarms on PDM (more discrete)
Smart phone version of PDM (iPhone, Android, etc)
Integrated lancet in PDM (one less thing to carry)
Extend distance that PDM and pod can sync
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
Upload food counts from a computer
Bolus from food library by entering amount of item (i.e. grams)
Make settings more user-definable (i.e. alarm volume, alarm frequency, extended bolus interval, temp basals, etc)
One basal that includes different weekday and weekend settings
In history, display actual bolus instead of suggested
IOB calc option that includes food bolus (similar to other pumps)
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
Alarm if canula has dislodged
Ability to enter carbs eaten to treat a low
Quick shut-off for alarms
Improved data reporting/mining
Expand data input to include items such as A1C, Doctor appt, BUN, Creatinine, Cholesterol, etc
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Go right to check BG after BG reminder (remove "ok" step)
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.
