Omnipod Users

Your Loop won’t have much showing initially until we get some basic settings input. The beginning step will be to add a pump to your Loop. If you are using an Omnipod pump, you can follow along for the rest of this page. If, however, you are using a Medtronic pump, please head over to this page instead.

Select Pump Type

Let’s start by clicking on the Loop Settings button in the toolbar at the bottom of your Loop app. It looks like a little sprocket. On the settings screen that opens, click on Add Pump and select the Omnipod option that appears.

A list of all RileyLinks in the nearby area will display in the RileyLink Setup screen. Select your RileyLink by sliding the toggle to display green and then press the blue Continue button at the bottom of the screen. If your RileyLink does not appear, make sure that its switch is turned on (switch slide up toward the case's keyring) and lipo is charged.

New RileyLink

New RileyLinks won't have a name listed next to their slider at first. The name will only be displayed after connecting a RileyLink to a Loop for the first time. So, if all you see in the device list is a little toggle off to the left and no "RileyLink" name...go ahead and switch that toggle. The RileyLink name will appear after that toggle is green.

Delivery Limits and Basals

The next screen will offer two areas where you will need to enter information:

When you finish entering these values, press the blue Continue button on the bottom of the Pod Settings screen to continue with the next steps of Pod setup.

Pair Pod

  1. Place the Pod near RileyLink
  2. Fill the Pod with insulin until it beeps (minimum fill is 80 units)
  3. Click the Pair button
  4. Wait while the progress bar for priming completes
  5. Press the Continue button when the blue checkmark confirms priming is complete

Insert Cannula

  1. Prepare your insertion site
  2. Remove the Pod's needle cap and adhesive backing
  3. If the cannula is safely tucked away, apply the Pod to your desired infusion site. If cannula is sticking out, press cancel in the upper right corner of the screen and try a new Pod.
  4. Press the Insert Cannula button.
  5. Listen to the clicks filling the cannula, wait for insertion and the progress bar to complete. The number of clicks to insertion is not consistent. The cannula will deploy before the progress bar is completed.
  6. Confirm cannula has deployed by looking through the peep-hole on the Pod.
  7. Press the Continue button

Expiration Reminder

Finish the setup with using the default expiration reminder time (2 hours before a full 3-days usage) or set the expiration notification to a more convenient time to your liking which will show up in your locked screen and vibrates at that time. Setup is complete and your Pod is ready for use when you press the final button.

Pod Settings

After the Pod setup is completed, you will be on the Pod Settings screen. This screen will provide a variety of important information about your Pod. You can always come back to this screen later by tapping on the Omnipod image in your Loop settings.

Device Information

The first section has information regarding how long the Pod has been active, expiration date and time, Pod identifying information (if you have to call in for a Pod failure).

Pod commands

There are two commands that you can issue through Loop to the Pod.

A banner notice will appear on the Loop's main screen when insulin delivery is suspended.

You will need to press Tap to Resume in the banner or the Resume Delivery button in the Pod settings to resume your scheduled basal rate and let Loop get back to action. Bolus deliveries will not be resumed, if they were interrupted.



This section provides information about your Pod's status.

Next Step: Add CGM

Congrats! You've added your Pod to your Loop app. Now, click on the Done button in the upper right corner of your Pump Settings screen to take you back to the Loop's settings. Your next step is to Add CGM to your Loop app. After all, without CGM data, your Loop won't loop.
