New diabetes management equipment

KIT

Roche Diabetes Care

has just introduced

the Accu-Chek Insight

insulin pump therapy

system in the UK

market, but access for most patients will

be available through clinics in the early

part of 2015. A few early users have taken

part in trials, taking advantage of the smart

technology, attractive design and intuitive

handling. It is the first insulin pump to

offer the option of using a prefilled insulin

cartridge, one of several aspects that add

to the ease of use, safe handling and

discreetness with of the Insight insulin

pump therapy system.

Like its predecessor, the Accu-Chek

Combo, there are two main components:

the Accu-Chek Insight insulin pump and

the Accu-Chek Aviva Insight diabetes

manager. The diabetes manager offers

blood glucose monitoring, a built-in

clinically proven bolus advisor with data

management on-the-go as well as an

remote control function for the insulin

pump. Once placed underneath the

clothes, there is no need to take out the

insulin pump for the rest of the day. Every

bolus can be programmed discreetly via

the Accu-Chek Aviva Insight diabetes

manager.

Roche hopes that by making

insulin pump therapy simple, discreet

and personal the Accu-Chek Insight

system can contribute to an improved

KIT THAT'S COMING SOON...

INSIDE

INSIGHT

personalised diabetes management and

supports diabetes self-management in

everyday life.

The Accu-Chek Insight diabetes

therapy system can contribute to more

freedom and flexibility in the lives of

people with diabetes - while it can help

support improved medical outcomes

since the system can be operated easily

and intuitively from the palm of the hand

and needs less steps for routine tasks

such as filling or inserting a new cartridge.

The pump is compatible with a range of

ergonomically designed infusion sets that

offer easy and straightforward insertion

as well as unique needle guard systems

designed for enhanced safety and

reliability.

Many of the improvements and

modifications have been introduced as

a result of user feedback on previous

pumps, so the Insight is even easier to

use than earlier models.

Some existing Combo pump users

will be able to upgrade to the new Insight

system, while potential new users (those

looking to go on a pump for the first

time) will be able to find out more when a

dedicated website is launched which will

contain information as well as videos to

assist with techniques for filling the insulin

reservoirs, inserting infusion sets, using

the bolus wizard and so on.
