General Questions

Can I swim, shower or bathe while wearing an insulin pump?

Both the Accu-Chek Combo and Accu-Chek Insight insulin pumps have an IPX8 rating. This means that both pumps are protected from brief immersion in water. As small hairline cracks in the housing of the device, or adapters and battery caps not being tightened enough could cause water to get into the device and cause damage, we recommend that you disconnect your insulin pump and leave it in a safe place before swimming, showering or bathing. This should only be done following advice from your healthcare professional, and you should test and correct as necessary at least every hour.
