Well done!

  • Your Accu-Chek Combo insulin delivery system

    Your Accu-Chek Combo insulin pump delivery system includes two main devices:

    • the Accu-Check Spirit Combo insulin pump
    • the Accu-Check Combo diabetes manager

    Together, they provide easy, quick and discreet insulin pump therapy centered to your needs. Through Bluetooth® wireless communication technology, these two devices can communicate with each other. You will learn more about that later in this module.

    Let’s now review the main features of both devices.

    Communication with the diabetes manager makes insulin pump operation easy, quick and discreet.
