Medtrum supplies both an insulin patch pump and a CGM sensor for people with diabetes who might need one or the other, or both.
The A6 Touchcare system comes complete with apps as well as a comprehensive website that carries tutorial videos on aspects of using the pump and sensor. Data picked up by the associated smartphone app includes trend graphs to show if blood glucose is rising or falling.
There are x4 sensors per box, each worn for seven days, so one box lasts a month. The CGM transmitter is rechargeable and the sensors take a measurement every two minutes, the most frequent of any glucose-monitoring sensor currently available.
For those who wish to self-fund there are two options for starter packs. Option 1 is one sensor plus one transmitter for £135. Option 2 is for a box of sensors plus one transmitter for £225. There are no annual commitments for either option, and ongoing costs are £35 for one sensor that will last a week or £140 for a box.
This is part of a round up of sensors currently available in the UK from a feature in the online magazine. To see the full feature click HERE.
