KINETIK WELLBEING

Kinetik Wellbeing has newly entered the

UK arena with a blood glucose monitoring

system. The company says, "At Kinetik

Wellbeing we believe that technology

has an important role to play in making

all of our lives better. Our award-winning,

affordable and accurate range of products

allow you to independently take control of

your health and wellbeing in the comfort

of your own home or when you are out

and about or at work. We looked hard at

designing an attractive meter that was not

clunky or plain."

Kinetik Wellbeing has an association

with St Johns Ambulance, the leading first

aid charity. SJA had sought partnerships

with medical device providers and after

a tendering process, Kinetic Wellbeing

was chosen, along with others, as the

charity liked the company's products

and approach. Now they are 'working

together to deliver healthcare in the

home', with SJA providing several first aid

guides, including one on what do to in a

diabetes emergency, such as someone

having a bad hypo. Kinetik Wellbeing

blood glucose monitoring system and

blood glucose test strips are £24.99 each.

YPSOMED

Ypsomed's diabetes brand is called mylife

(sic), to which it has recently added the

Unio Neva which can work in combination

with the mylife YpsoPump insulin pump.

Both devices have Bluetooth connection

and can send data wirelessly to the mylife

app and software. This means that the

user can combine blood glucose data

and pump data, as it gives an overview

of your therapy and more convenience

for bolus advice. Used with mylife cloud,

data synchronisation is possible between

you and your HCP, making treatment

discussions easy as graphs and statistics

can be seen there by both parties.

For those not using a pump, there's

the mylife Unio blood glucose meter,

which features a similar modern design,

making it nice and small to handle. It has

an LCD display for clear results of fast and

accurate results and includes up to four

daily alarms as well

as up to four event

markers which can

be selected for each

measurement, and

can be subsequently

edited.

Much of the

design of these two

meters was based

on user surveys,

so the power of

the people has

influenced the

end-design, and

the company reports high feedback for

ease-of-use. Of interest to some might be

the equally nifty tub of sensors that goes

with mylife sensors which is less round

and more of an oval shape (46mm high,

44mm wide, 28mm deep). Sensors need

no coding, and many might be amused

by the fact that sensors are inserted

'sideways' which is meant to make

putting blood on the end of the sensor

less hit-and-miss.
