As far as I know, there is only one kind of approved pod system for insulin delivery, the Omni Pod. There are several different suppliers that can provide the Omni Pods, but the pods themselves are all the same. Your supplier will be determined by your insurance company. They will have a list of suppliers that they consider "contracted". These will be the suppliers that will offer the pods at the best price.

There are companies out there that offer skins to cover your pods with if you want to have designs on it. The best one is Pump Peelz (www.pumppeelz.com). However, I use temporary tattoos on mine. All you have to do is apply them like you would on your skin, allow it to dry, then paint a light coat of clear nail polish over the tattoo. You can also use Sharpie Markers on the pods to add designs if you want.
