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

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

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

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
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Quick shut-off for alarms
Ability to enter carbs eaten to treat a low
Go right to check BG after BG reminder (remove "ok" step)
Improved data reporting/mining
Alarm if canula has dislodged
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
Rechargeable PDM battery (like cell phone)
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
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Slightly curved/cushioned (or flexible) bottom of pod for better fit
