Re: [IPk] Re: Soft-sense Meters

I have completed an evaluation study on the Soft-Sense meter using diabetic 
patients that attend for clinic. The study involved patients doing a test 
using the meter on their forearm, and then completing a questionnaire 
comparing their own meter with the Soft-Sense for pain and ease of use. The 
results will be published later on in the year. But basically the results 
show that over 90% found the Soft-Sense to be far less painful and easier to 
use than their own current meter.

As Carmel says, it is bulkier than current meters on the market, but it has a 
combined lancet and test strip inside so that all one needs to do is load a 
test strip, hold the meter against your arm or any other place you fancy 
testing, press the button and the meter will prick the skin and draw up a 
tiny amount of blood and then give a result all in one step.
