Re: [IP] omnipod

When my son got his through Children's Medical Center in Dallas they  
got us in touch with Omnipods rep.  She came to our house and let my  
son, my wife and I all wear one for a couple of days with saline  
solution.  She actually said they have lots of Pods for that purpose  
that didn't pass inspection for some reason, but worked fine as a demo.

Maybe you should change your strategy and go after the reps name  
instead of asking for a test drive.  When you meet with the rep hit  
the rep up one on one face to face.

Could be worth a try.
