Pure thoughts

This nice, white machine from Swiss-based company Ypsomed is the Pura meter. With no coding required, the meter switches on automatically when a new test strip is clicked into position – and for a change, you put this in sideways. The large illuminated display means test results are extremely easy to read (super for kids, or the hard-of-sight). Various functions are very simple to operate using the 3-button control system. It comes with a Softlance lancing device. The lancet can also be changed safely and easily as the hygienic ejection mechanism means that you can remove the lancet without touching it. A choice silicon covers in different covers protect against damage, provide a good grip and are stop the meter skidding around on surfaces. Uses mylife Pura Test strips, stores 500 results and shows 1,7,14,30 and 90-day averages.
