The Insulet Corporation


Insulet, the company behind Omnipod, has a colorful history, but the leadership team today is new and they clearly make an insulin pump which is popular with many.  


The medical device space is unfortunately rife with bad actors and it appears Omnipod employed a few. 

Unreported deaths?

In the past, one organization  published serious allegations regarding Omnipod and its former leaders.

Maude abuse?

Related to an above story, but providing more details, they were alleged to have abused MAUDE reporting requirements.

More of the same?

Insulet’s new CEO – Dr.  Hollingshead was formerly the President at ResMed, which had issues with illegal kickbacks.

Which insulin pump is better engineered?

As a chemical and biomedical engineer, I was interested in better understanding which insulin pump manufacturer took, in my opinion, a safer approach to their insulin pump design.  

Newly diagnosed?

I share my thoughts on the top next steps parents of a recently diagnosed t1d child should consider.
