"Try it on the back of your arm (not the side,) you do not bump into anything any more and do not need extra tape. I do this all the time and have no problems this way. To put it on see the instructions I left on January 22. The only disadvantage is…"

"Hi Aroni what I share with you is what works for me may not work for him but probably will. First I ask you to go to my home page and look at the pictures that I have posted. The Kinesio tape has made my life great as the door jams are not a problem…"

barend replied to Aroni's discussion 'Left arm fine, right arm has failed every time!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Initially I have been trying different sites for the pod. Started with the stomach, didn't work well for me. Now my arms are the best place. I think you have to experiment and find out which site works best for your husband. We are all…"

"So far I have been placing the pods on the back of his arms, but your information will be very useful for when he does it himself. Thanks so much for your input!"

Aroni replied to Aroni's discussion 'Left arm fine, right arm has failed every time!' in the group OmniPod Users
"We certainly understood the 'bump on the wall' error, but that was only the one time. The others were occlusions (while blousing) or pod errors. He has tried it where you suggested. He's also tried cannula up and cannula down. Maybe…"

Aroni replied to Aroni's discussion 'Left arm fine, right arm has failed every time!' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm sorry, I didn't mean give Omnipod up! I just meant the right arm! He's giving his stomach a rest from wearing the MM there for eight years. As far as the thighs....he is so muscular there, but I guess it's worth a try!"

Herman replied to Aroni's discussion 'Left arm fine, right arm has failed every time!' in the group OmniPod Users
"Left or right for me no difference. But what is the right way to put it on your arm. This is the way it was explained to me by Ypsomed. For placing on your right arm, you put your right hand on your head, and with your left hand you place the pod on…"

meh_mtl replied to Aroni's discussion 'Left arm fine, right arm has failed every time!' in the group OmniPod Users
"when I first started on the omni pod I had problems with the right arm because I kept knocking it. I find where you place it on the arm makes a big difference. when I do my arm I try to put it closer to the arm pit, so that when I sleep on my side I…"
