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).

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Better pod adhesion, more contact points (especially around canula)
More visible serial numbers
More visible canula (to confirm insertion and flow)
Slightly curved/cushioned (or flexible) bottom of pod for better fit
Ability to customize pod appearance (skins, stickers, color, designs)
Larger reservoir (for higher insulin needs)
Removable reservoir (reduce insulin waste, support 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).

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Integrated lancet in PDM (one less thing to carry)
Waterproof/shockproof PDM option (for outdoor lifestyle)
Rechargeable PDM battery (like cell phone)
Better form-factor for PDM (smaller, more modern style & features)
Extend distance that PDM and pod can sync
Smart phone version of PDM (iPhone, Android, etc)
Sunlight readable screen
Vibrate option for alarms on PDM (more discrete)

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).

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7
One basal that includes different weekday and weekend settings
Bolus from food library by entering amount of item (i.e. grams)
In history, display actual bolus instead of suggested
Upload food counts from a computer
Meal pre-sets for combination/extended boluses
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)

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).

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Go right to check BG after BG reminder (remove "ok" step)
Quick shut-off for alarms
Alarm if canula has dislodged
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Improved data reporting/mining
Ability to enter carbs eaten to treat a low
Expand data input to include items such as A1C, Doctor appt, BUN, Creatinine, Cholesterol, etc

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.

  Must have Love to have Nice to have Don't care Don't want No opinion
Extend distance that PDM and pod can sync
Upload food counts from a computer
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Meal pre-sets for combination/extended boluses
