The Accu-check Aviva is
the latest glucometer from Roche. It replaces the older Accu-check Advantage meter
but still keeps its benefits.
- Measures in mmol/L only
- Revolutionary new Mutlticlix Lancets
- Small blood volume needed for tests (0.6 microliter)
results in 5 seconds
- Alternative site testing
to use, just two simple steps
- 500 test memory for storing almost
all your readings
- 7,14 and 30 day averaging
data interface port
- Small and light in weight
Aviva is small but well designed to keep a large screen and large easy to see
readings. This is especially useful for those with poor sight. The glucometer
is easy to use and requires only a small blood sample. This should mean less painful
The Accu-check Aviva uses Accuchek's latest lancets, Multiclix.
The lancets are revolutionary as they are one of the safest lancets available.
They are designed so that the lancet point is contained within a drum and only
exposed when the device is actually used. This should dramatically decrease any
chance of an accidental injury whilst using the Accu-check Aviva and is especially
useful for those who find the current single lancets fiddly and difficult to use.
Alternative site testing is another big advantage with the Accu-check Aviva
meter. Because of the design of the strip and the fact that the meter only requires
a small amount of blood, you could take a blood sample from almost anywhere. Possibly
giving your finger tips a break. The meter comes with an extension spacer to allow
alternative site testing.
Please note: when blood sugar levels are changing
rapidly it is recommended to test the finger tips rather then any other site.
Talk to your doctor about whether alternative site testing would be appropriate
One of the great features about the Accu-check Aviva is that it
can be programmed to ring up to 4 test reminder alarms. This is handy if you do
have a tendency to forget when to test.
