Accu-Chek® Combo Insulin Pump System

Features

System Features and Benefits

  • Two-way Bluetooth® wireless technology between the two devices - with the Accu-Chek Aviva Combo meter, you have full  remote control over pump functionality and can deliver a bolus in a fast and discreet way and have full visibility on pump status and activity – right in the palm of your hand.  No need to access the pump.
  • Bolus calculator on the Accu-Chek Aviva Combo meter - Quick, easy and discreet bolus delivery with assistance from a fully customisable bolus calculator
  • Multiple options for data transfer with:
    • Accu-Chek® 360° software
    • Accu-Chek® Smart Pix device reader
    • Accu-Chek® 360° USB cable
    • Accu-Chek® Realtyme USB cable

Flexibility of data transfer to PC to fits your needs and capabilities

  • Preset and customisable reminders, warnings and error signals for glucose level excursions, pump occlusions and more - Customisable reminders and glucose warnings support you in managing your daily pump therapy.

Pump Features and Benefits 

  • Customisable insulin pump menus - 3 menus (standard, advanced, custom) on the pump to allow you to learn about the Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pump step by step and customize it for your daily use
  • Watertight pump rating of IPX8 (2.5 meters/ 8 feet, 60 minutes) when leaving factory site. Ex-factory pump rated for accidental contact with water - Roche guarantees protection against brief accidental water contact, such as rain, water splashes or accidental immersion
  • Tactile buttons - Allow for confident and discreet bolus delivery even when the meter is not available.  The pump can be operated from under clothing using the tactile buttons.
  • 315 U insulin reservoir capacity - Convenient, easy-to-fill cartridge saves time with less frequent reservoir filling.
  • A small hourly basal rate (0.05 U/hr) delivered in 20 intervals over the course of the hour - More than small enough for greater than 99% of the pumping population, especially considering that the Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pump can spread that low dosing rate over the entire hour instead of just a few doses.
  • Sophisticated occlusion-alarm sensitivity with detection after average of 0.7h at basal rate of 0.1 U/hr - Occlusion protection ensures continuous, reliable insulin delivery and helps improve blood glucose control through reduction of occlusion related hyperglycaemia.

Meter Features and Benefits 

  • Full-colour display - with a colour display, graph clarity is enhanced and key items are highlighted.
  • Discretion and convenience when delivering an insulin dosing command - wirelessly send your bolus 2 meters (6.5 feet) from the pump via Bluetooth® wireless technology
  • Scroll menu with 3 user menu levels and menu-driven user interface - Easy-to-use and  intuitively designed functionality lets you grow in the features you use as you get more  comfortable with pump therapy
  • On-meter bolus calculator - straightforward and intuitive bolus calculation process from blood glucose to insulin delivery.
  • Customisable reminders -  for changing infusion sets, making doctor and lab visits, retesting following meals and/or out-of-range blood glucose incidents
    • Confidence—You don’t have to keep track of everything in your head—you can programme reminders into the system.
    • Discretion—You don’t have to get the pump out to see and act on reminders

Other insulin pump settings (the hourly basal rates, remaining cartridge content, bolus increments and active user menu) and the event memory (bolus history, history of daily insulin totals, Temporary Basal Rate history, and alarm history) are saved, regardless of battery voltage and the time your insulin pump has been without a battery.
  • Cartridges: Accu-Chek Spirit 3.15 ml cartridge system and Accu-Chek 3.15 ml plastic cartridge with a lure-lock connection. Insuman cartridges*** have been evaluated and approved for use with the Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pump.

  • Safety Systems: Alert system, beeps, information on the display, vibrations, and dual microprocessors. Your insulin pump is controlled by two microprocessors.  The safety concept is based on one processor (supervisor processor) supervising the other (main processor). Whenever a defect or fault occurs in the main processor, it is identified by the supervisor processor. The motor is immediately switched off and an “Error E7: ELECTRONIC ERROR” occurs. Conversely, the main processor can also determine at any time whether the supervisor is working correctly. The motor also constitutes an important safety component, as the combination of the main and supervisor processor and brushless motor provides the best possible reliability and accuracy in insulin delivery.
  • Delivery: 1/20 of the current hourly basal rate in 3-minute intervals.
