Joey replied to MattVT's discussion 'New Pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"We owe the Europeans a debt of gratitude for being "on the bleeding edge." And since we Canadians are behind the Americans, perhaps all the bugs will be worked out by the time we get our new smaller pods in several months."

"We Europeans are on the bleeding edge. I sincerely hope the problems will be resolved when you receive the first shipments in the USA."

"Ypsomed confirmed to me that my 80% failure rate was due to a "technical issue". They are aware and working on it. But the problems can't be ignored."

barend replied to MattVT's discussion 'New Pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Unfortunately, they are obviously not. Ypsomed , the European distributor, confirmed me that as far as the occlusion issue is concerned they are working on it. It indeed seems to be a sensitivity problem. But, as you, I am slightly diappointed in…"

"I'm sure there's a learning curve for the new pods, just like there was for the old ones."

"Stop not all bad news. I used 3.5 boxes now and had only one failure (occlusion) wich is not per def. a pod failure. But it is replaced by ypsomed. I am very happy with the new 2nd gen pods. No problems."

"wow! Badddd news about all the reports of the high failure rate of the new pods. I doubt most of us will get them prior to the summer. Ive got 6 boxes of old pods left & have told my supplier to stop sending me any new pods with hopes of using…"

"Yes, I've had problems too ! Started on the small pods in December and had a box with 50% occlusions and have had a further two this week within 48 hours. My BS were 4.3 and 5.1 and had just been running so I think it's a problem with the…"

"Please donot be over excited as far as the new pods are concerned. Insulet still has some problems to fix unfortunately. I have experienced many occlusions since early December 2012 when I started wearing the new ones. Last box: 8 out of ten.…"

FHS replied to MattVT's discussion 'New Pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"My next 90 day shipment is due next week. Really bad timing as far as the new pods are concerned. Insulet said they would be happy to change my shipment to a 30 day supply, renewable each month, and then switch it back to 90 days once the new pods…"

Dondi replied to MattVT's discussion 'New Pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I got an opportunity to look at the next gen up close and personal. I am just finishing training on using the pod and the Omnipod rep had one to show me. It has a number of improvements. 1st is is smaller. About 2/3 the size of the current pod. A…"

Erik replied to MattVT's discussion 'New Pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"You will receive a new PDM with your first order of pods. It's "free." I think they may charge if you are out of the 4 year warranty. The motivation for providing it gratis is it will enable you to use the higher margin pods so they…"
