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
Removable reservoir (reduce insulin waste, support higher insulin needs)
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)

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

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
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
Meal pre-sets for combination/extended boluses
Upload food counts from a computer
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).

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

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)
Integrated lancet in PDM (one less thing to carry)
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
More accurate calculation for insulin level in reservoir
Smart phone version of PDM (iPhone, Andoid, etc)
More visible canula (to confirm insertion and flow)
Upload food counts from a computer
IOB calc option that includes food bolus (similar to other pumps)
Better pod adhesion, more contact points (especially around canula)
