Accu-Chek Combo

As the name suggests, the Combo

combines an Accu-Chek Aviva Expert

blood test meter which doubles as a

handset that controls the pump. An easy

menu lets you set up a system of insulin

delivery suited to your needs, using the

handset to tell the pump what insulin to

deliver, done via Bluetooth technology

from the handset. Blood test results are

stored in the separate meter and can

be viewed in a variety of ways (graphs,

averages). The meter lists and graphs

your blood test results as well as your

insulin doses. There is an on-board bolus

calculator in the meter and the colour

screen makes understanding readings

easier. The Combo pump is waterproof to

a depth of 2.5m for 60 minutes.

Accu-Chek Insight (pictured)

The Accu-Chek Insight insulin pump

therapy system includes the option of

using a prefilled insulin cartridge, one of

several aspects that add to the ease of

use, safe handling and discreetness.

Like the Accu-Chek Combo, there are

two main components: the Accu-Chek

Insight insulin pump and a handset

(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

Brand: MyLife

Pump name: Ypsopump

Sensor augmented: Yes

Colour display: No.

Careline: 24/7, 0344 856 7820

The development team of the mylife

YpsoPump designed an insulin pump

which focuses on essential functions.

It has an icon-based touchscreen for

intuitive operation and is a small (78mm

x46mm x16mm) and light-weight (around

80g) device for discreet and comfortable

wearing. It uses pre-filled cartridges

for quick and convenient changes and

includes Bluetooth integration for wireless

connection to the MyLife software and

app. Small and lightweight, the pump

requires the user to have little training,

being designed to be easy to operate.

The icon-based menu allows for intuitive

operation via an OLED touchscreen

(41mm x16mm), and it can handle

immersion in water to a depth of 1m for

up to 60 minutes. It features 30 years

Swiss medical engineering. It also works

with the MyLife Unio Neva blood glucose

meter, which can advise on boluses.

The MyLife Cloud allows you to

share data with your HCP. The open

platform system allows for integration

of other devices, for example the bolus

calculator app allows you to to manually

enter a blood test result from any other

device, so any can be used alongside the

Ypsopump system, allowing you to chose

which meter to use, or CGM, if you wish.

pump. Once placed under clothing, there

is no need to take out the insulin pump

for the rest of the day as boluses can be

given discreetly via the handset. Ease

of use can contribute to an improved

personalised diabetes management

by making self-management easier to

undertake in everyday life. The on-board

bolus advisor has been clinically proven to

reduce HbA1c over time. With three bolus

types available, different boluses can run

in parallel if needed (e.g. an extended

bolus for dinner and then standard bolus

for desert). There are other settings that

help users with visual impairment or who

are hard of hearing. The Insight pump,

which is worn on the body, is waterproof

to a depth of 1.3m for 60 minutes (the

handset is not waterproof).

While neither pump is currently sensor

augmented, Roche Diabetes Care in

the UK now distributes Senseonic's

Eversense implantable CGM.
