Checking your blood glucose readings with the iBGStarTM couldn’t be simpler. With the iBGStarTM connected to your iPhone or iPod Touch, insert a test strip with the contact bars facing up. Use the lancing device to obtain a blood drop* then touch the end of the test strip to your blood drop. A beep on your iPhone or iPod Touch confirms a correct reading and that your data has been synced.* The iBGStarTM also works as a stand-alone meter, and when synced with your Apple iOS 3.0 device or higher, will also display the date and time. The meter can store up to 300 readings.*See instructions provided with lancing device.
The iBGStarTM employs a patented technology called Dynamic Electrochemistry® – advanced technology that extracts a spectrum of information from the blood that is inaccessible to traditional electrochemical methods. This method compensates for many interfering factors that can often distort blood glucose results, helping to ensure accurate and reliable blood glucose readings. A complex signal detects and corrects the common errors for accurate performance.
The iBGStarTM is ultra compact and, because it syncs to your iPhone or iPod Touch, you won’t need to carry an extra device around. The iBGStarTM is discrete and as flexible as your lifestyle, so you can check your blood glucose readings anywhere.
The iBGStarTM received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for outstanding product design and exemplary innovation in form and function.
Thanks to your automatically downloaded Diabetes Manager App, your iBGStarTM is highly customisable. There are separate screens for your Trend Chart, Logbook and Statistics, and your data is displayed in easy-to-read charts on your iPhone or iPod Touch. These three powerful tools record blood glucose readings over time and provide you with at-a-glance views of your display averages, standard deviations, total blood glucose readings and insulin doses, allowing you to track your trends over time.
The iBGStarTM Diabetes Manager App has a built-in note feature that lets you provide context for unusual readings. So if you just took insulin, ate something you normally don’t, or went for a run, the App can help you keep track of it. If ever there’s a problem with your blood glucose readings, your iBGStarTM will keep you updated by displaying hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic alerts when they are out of the normal range.
You can record and track blood glucose readings, carbohydrate intake and insulin doses using simple, clearly displayed charts. You can then store and print your results, or share them by email. It’s that simple.
