OmniPod(R) Insulin Management System Lets Team Type 1 Members Focus on Competing at Amgen Tour of California
Date:2/14/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Amgen Tour of California, known as "America's largest and most prestigious cycling event," is a 750-mile race that will begin on February 14th in Sacramento and end on February 22nd in Rancho Bernardo. For the first time, the race will include Team Type 1, a team that includes two members with Type 1 diabetes. Thanks to the OmniPod(R) Insulin Management System, Team Type 1 members Phil Southerland and Fabio Calabria will be able to concentrate on competing, rather than insulin injections and blood glucose monitoring, because they will be wearing their OmniPods during the race.

"Our goal is to show the world that people with diabetes can do everything those without diabetes can," said Calabria, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 13 and feared the condition might bring an end to his promising athletic career as a cyclist. "I am lucky to be armed with the OmniPod System which allows me to easily deliver the insulin I need to compete with the best cyclists in the world."

The OmniPod System consists of two wireless components: the Pod - a compact, lightweight, self-adhesive insulin delivery device that is worn discreetly on the skin beneath clothing; and the Personal Diabetes Manager - a wireless, menu-driven, hand-held device that programs the Pod.

"While racing, I am able to keep my Personal Diabetes Managers in the car that follows us. This is a major advantage over traditional insulin pump systems, with which you have to carry the machine at all times," Calabria explained.
