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

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Rechargeable PDM battery (like cell phone)
Sunlight readable screen
Extend distance that PDM and pod can sync
Smart phone version of PDM (iPhone, Android, etc)
Integrated lancet in PDM (one less thing to carry)
Better form-factor for PDM (smaller, more modern style & features)
Waterproof/shockproof PDM option (for outdoor lifestyle)
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
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
Bolus from food library by entering amount of item (i.e. grams)
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).

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Alarm if canula has dislodged
Go right to check BG after BG reminder (remove "ok" step)
Ability to enter carbs eaten to treat a low
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Quick shut-off for alarms
Improved data reporting/mining
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
Waterproof/shockproof PDM option (for outdoor lifestyle)
Removable reservoir (reduce insulin waste, support higher insulin needs)
Alarm if canula has dislodged
Sunlight readable PDM screen
Improved data reporting/mining
Ability to enter carbs eaten to treat a low
Better form-factor for PDM (smaller, more modern style and features)
Go right to check BG after BG reminder (remove ok step)
IOB calc option that includes food bolus (similar to other pumps)
Upload food counts from a computer
Extend distance that PDM and pod can sync
Expand data input to include items such as A1C, Doctor appt, BUN..Creatinine..Cholesterol, and other medical info
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)
Quick shut-off for alarms
Vibrate option for alarms on PDM (more discrete)
In history, display actual bolus instead of suggested
One basal that includes different weekday and weekend settings

Smart phone version of PDM (iPhone, Andoid, etc)
Make settings more user-definable (i.e. alarm volume, alarm frequency, extended bolus interval, temp basals, etc)
Bolus from food library by entering amount of item (i.e. grams)
Ability to customize pod appearance (skins, stickers, color, designs)
Rechargeable PDM battery (like cell phone)
