AlixPartners Forecasts: Household Products Could Cost U.S. Manufacturers and Consumers 15% More This Year Due to Resin Shortage

While companies can’t control the market forces at play, they can take action to mitigate the risk and impact of supply chain disruption.

How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements. Using this RF sealing process, a distinct, one-piece perpetual bond is formulated that is both solid and resistant to ripping or tearing. But how is this process controlled, and with what specific tools? Read on.

Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) (Insulet or the Company), the global leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its Omnipod® brand of products, today announced its schedule of events for the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Virtual 81st Scientific Sessions June 25 – 29, 2021.

The Company will also report additional results from the Omnipod 5 pivotal study in people aged 6 through 70 years living with type 1 diabetes, including clinical outcomes after transitioning from multiple daily injections, the Company’s three-month pivotal extension study results that includes six months of system use, and quality of life and satisfaction data.

Promotional Activities:

Insulet has been selected by the American Diabetes Association to be featured throughout the event on ADA TV in the signature Thought Leadership Series, which highlights the work of five sponsors and broadcasts to a global audience of over 580,000 viewers during and after the meeting. There will be two featured Omnipod channels – one specific to Omnipod DASH and one specific to Omnipod 5 – and will feature Insulet executive leaders and several well-known endocrinologists.

Insulet’s virtual exhibit will feature Omnipod DASH and Omnipod 5 product information, highlighting how the tubeless insulin management system can simplify life for people with diabetes.

Visitors will also learn how Insulet can support clinicians prescribing Omnipod products to their patients, as well as the benefits of Insulet’s unique business model offering Omnipod products through the pharmacy channel, which requires no commitment or long-term contract and no charge for the Omnipod Personal Diabetes Manager, or PDM, with the first box of Pods. The booth will also offer information about the Company’s partnership with Glooko for automated access to patient data.

Next month, Insulet will host a webinar summarizing all of the Company’s data presented at ADA. This webinar will be led by Dr. Ly and will feature U.S. health care providers presenting the clinical data and sharing the features and benefits of Omnipod 5.
