Item Description

Accu-Chek Solo micropump system

We know that one of the reasons that you might shy away from using a regular insulin pump is the fact that it is connected with tubing that might get in the way. The Accu-Chek Solo micropump is tube-free and lightweight so that you hardly know it is there. 

The Accu-Chek Solo micropump is different

Undoubtedly living with diabetes comes with a set of demands and challenges and life can be demanding enough already. That's why we have designed the Accu-Chek Solo micropump to put control at your fingertips. It gives you two possibilities for delivering your bolus, you can use the diabetes manager handset or simply use the quick bolus buttons right on the pump to deliver your insulin.

Made for flexibility in your life

Planning to go out dancing, play some sports, or meet your new date? The modular design of the Accu-Chek Solo micropump lets you decide where to place it. You can change your infusion sites without wasting insulin or the micropump itself. Just detach the micropump, change the infusion assembly and reattach. You only have to have one insertion when changing the infusion sites every two or three days.
