Re: [IPk] Medisense Optium



Hi Denise, Tony & Adrian

Many thanks for all the advice - I think I will give Medisense a ring
tomorrow and if they won't let me try one on a trial I'll just go ahead and
order.  Good point you picked up there John.  My pc doesn't have a spare
serial port available although I do have USB at the front which is a lot
more accessible.

Karen
