Insulet Celebrates Milestone Of 100,000 Customers Actively Using The Omnipod® System

Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) (Insulet or the Company), the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its Omnipod ® Insulin Management System (Omnipod System), today announced it has reached a milestone of 100,000 global users enjoying the quality of life benefits of the Omnipod System. The Company is celebrating this significant milestone during National Diabetes Awareness Month and is conducting a number of events to drive further awareness around diabetes and Omnipod.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the first tubeless insulin delivery system, the Omnipod System, in 2005. The Omnipod System provides users - referred to as "Podders" - with a tubeless, waterproof patch-pump technology that offers significant quality of life benefits. This includes a differentiated design that provides 72 hours of non-stop, discreet insulin delivery and eliminates the need for multiple daily injections. The Omnipod System's positive impact on quality of life and user experience has been further validated in a recent study of more than ~1,200 users published in Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics 1 . The majority of Podders reported improvements in their perceived control over their diabetes and hypoglycemic safety, among other benefits, since starting use of the Omnipod System.

Gwynn Harris is the mother of seven-year-old Podder, Anna. She's thrilled Anna has been recognized as one of the group of Podders who helped Insulet achieve the milestone of 100,000 users worldwide and feels fortunate to be part of such a supportive community.

"As a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes, I can testify that using the Omnipod System is truly a game-changer for us - it significantly improves our lives for the better," said Gwynn. "The Omnipod helps reduce the impact diabetes has on Anna's life. She is able to follow her passions and pursue her hobbies, including skiing, swimming and playing tennis. The Omnipod technology keeps us from interrupting Anna through these daily activities as we help her manage her condition. We all feel like we have our freedom back."
