Sorry about my delay in replying.. it's been pretty hectic this week getting
Sarah ready for Camp as she was on stage in Alice in Wonderland at a London
theatre just 11 hours before her flight.

We use IV prep before applying the sensor, so we haven't had any problems
with sweating, but England is of course not as hot. We'll see how it goes
with her spending the summer in Texas, (she just arrived a few hours ago)

The sensor size is about the same as a Comfort insertion set, the sticky a
bit larger and the depth a little thicker, but it doesn't seem to get
knocked at all. There aren't directional arrows but readings are shown
graphically and you can view 1 hr, 3hr or 9hr screens so you can see if they
are level, going up or down very easily. The Guardian direction arrow can be
misleading if say the trend over the last hour is rising and one reading is
lower, it could show a downward arrow.

May I advise you contact

He has been really helpful and am sure could arrange for someone to show it
all to you.
