Study Shows ACCU-CHEK(R) Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems and Lancing Devices Are Least Painful
Date:12/1/2008

e at least 3 times a day for 36 days, testing on each site-finger, palm and forearm-with each of the 3 competitor brands and 1 of the ACCU-CHEK products. After testing was completed, responses by subjects to the products were compared. In a second experiment in a laboratory setting, the ACCU-CHEK Multiclix and ACCU-CHEK Softclix Plus lancing devices were compared individually to competitor lancing devices.

"There is no question that better management of diabetes results in better outcomes for the patient," Aspy said. "By offering a lancing device that results in least painful testing, we are helping to remove one of the barriers to adequate testing for improved diabetes management."

The comparative pain study was conducted by Dr. Richard Koubek, of Koubek and Associates, on behalf of Roche.
