ACCU-CHEK(R) Aviva System Receives Arthritis Foundation's Ease-of-Use Commendation
Date:3/18/2008

ACCU-CHEK(R) Aviva System is the first blood glucose monitoring system to

receive ease-of-use recognition.

INDIANAPOLIS, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The Arthritis Foundation has awarded its Ease-of-Use Commendation to the ACCU-CHEK(R) Aviva system, making it the first blood glucose monitoring system to receive such recognition.

Both the ACCU-CHEK Aviva meter and test strips and the ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus drum of test strips received Ease-of-Use Commendations in 2006 because of their effective, easy-to-use designs. In December 2007, the ACCU-CHEK Multiclix lancing device, part of the ACCU-CHEK Aviva system, also passed the evaluation.

"We are proud that our products have been recognized with the Ease-of-Use Commendation by the Arthritis Foundation. The ACCU-CHEK Aviva system, with its large easy-fill test strip, easy to handle sure-grip meter, and pre-loaded lancet drum with no individual lancets to handle provides a full system designed to meet the needs of people with diabetes and arthritis," said Roche Product Marketing Manager Cathleen Stubblefield. "We are proud of this accomplishment."

About 60 percent of people with diabetes also have arthritis or other diseases of the joint, which can be a barrier to blood glucose testing. The Arthritis Foundation created a program to encourage manufacturers to design with ease of use in mind. The program determines the accessibility and ease of use of everyday products by allowing people with arthritis to evaluate them. Each product must pass a series of rigorous evaluations.

"Arthritis is a serious health condition that can greatly affect the quality of life for everyone, particularly people with conditions like diabetes, where self-monitoring is crucial," said Scott Walters, group vice president for corporate relations at the Arthritis Foundation. "Through our Ease-of-Use commendation program, we hope that we can make people living with arthritis and diabetes awar
