Insulet (PODD) is competing against Mini Med, a division of Medtronic, for the insulin delivery system segment. The product has a needle which is inserted until an audible sound is heard, then the needle withdraws leaving behind a tethlon tube. Insuline is dripped from the pod into the body via the tube. When the pod is low on the solution, more is added. This avoids the nasty needle sticks many diabetics loath.
The pod can be worn many places on the body and has no major tubes of complicated computer readouts, vs. the typical insulin pump.
Often a physician asks the patient to try wearing the pod while it drips saline. Uptake is high afterwards as the pod is so comfortable.
Per the CEO, Duane Desisto, they may have a pump company burried in a pod company. Meaning that other drugs may be delivered via the pod.
