Just this week, Insulet announced it had reached the milestone of 100,000 Podders, with a majority of those customers being young children and teens. Insulet’s own research reflects they now command 21% of the insulin pump market in the United States, sandwiched between Medtronic’s whopping 41% and competitors Animas and Tandem, each at 18%. This a big moment for the Boston-area company, which has been around sin
ce 2005 and, amazingly, remains the sole full-featured patch pump company here in the US.
Now, Insulet’s prepping for the launch of its next-generation product, that will bring the OmniPod into the mobile, data-sharing age.
