Deliver a bolus in a fast and discreet way and have full visibility on your pump's status and activity - right in the palm of your hand. No need to constantly handle your pump, it remains discreetly hidden under your clothes.
  • Bolus calculator on the Accu-Chek Performa Combo meter - Quick, easy and discreet bolus delivery with assistance from a fully customisable bolus calculator. Set your parameters to suit your needs.
  • Option for data transfer with -
    • ACCU-CHEK® Smart Pix device reader
  • Preset and customisable reminders, warnings and error signals for glucose level excursions, pump occlusions and more - Customisable reminders and glucose warnings support you in managing your daily pump therapy.
Pump Features and Benefits
  • Customisable insulin pump menus - 3 menus (standard, advanced, custom) on the pump to allow you to learn about the Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pump step by step and customise it for your daily use
  • Water resistance rating of IPX8 (2.5 meters/ 8 feet, 60 minutes) when leaving factory site. Ex-factory pump rated for accidental contact with water - Roche guarantees protection against brief accidental water contact, such as rain, water splashes or accidental temporary immersion. Refer to the user manual for correct user procedures.
  • Tactile buttons - Allow for confident and discreet bolus delivery even when the meter is not available. The pump can be operated from under clothing using the tactile buttons.
  • 315 U insulin reservoir capacity - Convenient, easy-to-fill cartridge saves time with less frequent reservoir filling.
  • A small hourly basal rate (0.05 U/hr) delivered in 20 intervals over the course of the hour - small enough for more than 99% of the pumping population, especially considering that the Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin pump can spread the low dosing rate over the entire hour (every 3 minutes) instead of just a few doses (480 doses per day).
  • Sophisticated occlusion-alarm sensitivity with detection after average of 0.7h at basal rate of 0.1 I.E. per hour - Occlusion protection ensures continuous, reliable insulin delivery and helps improve blood glucose control through reduction of occlusion related hyperglycaemia
  • Sleek, black, ergonomically designed devices with 8 different colour pump skins to choose from (made from similar material as iPod® skins) - Choice of classic design or a variety of colours to suit your personality
Meter Features and Benefits
  • Full-colour display - with a colour display, graph clarity is enhanced and key items are highlighted
  • Discretion and convenience when delivering an insulin dosing command - wirelessly send your bolus delivery up to 2 metres from the pump via Bluetooth® wireless technology

  • On-meter bolus calculator - straightforward and "intuitive" bolus calculation process from blood glucose to insulin delivery
  • Customisable reminders - for changing infusion sets, making doctor and lab visits, retesting following meals and/or out-of-range blood glucose incidents
  • Confidence - You don't have to keep track of everything in your head-you can program reminders into the system
  • Discretion - You don't have to get the pump out to see and act on reminders or other important information

  • Power Supply: One 1.5-volt AA Alkaline (LR6) or lithium (FR6) battery or One 1.2-volt rechargeable NiMH AA (HR6) battery. Batteries should have a minimum capacity of 2500 mAh. Use only a battery charger officially recommended by the battery manufacturer
  • Lifetime of Battery: If used in a typical usage pattern (50 U/day using U100 insulin; operating temperature 23°C ±2°C [73°F ±4°F]) Bluetooth® wireless technology the battery life is approximately:

Other insulin pump settings (the hourly basal rates, remaining cartridge content, bolus increments and active user menu) and the event memory (bolus history, history of daily insulin totals, temporary basal rate history, alarm history) are saved, regardless of battery voltage or the length of time your insulin pump has been without a battery

  • Quality Systems: Alert system, beeps, information on the display, vibrations, dual microprocessors. Your insulin pump is controlled by two microprocessors. The quality concept is based on one processor (supervisor processor) supervising the other (main processor). Whenever a defect or fault occurs in the main processor, it is identified by the supervisor processor. The motor is immediately switched off and an "Error E7: ELECTRONIC ERROR" occurs. Conversely, the main processor can also determine at any time whether the supervisor is working correctly. The motor also constitutes an important safety component, as the combination of the main and supervisor processor and brushless motor provides the best possible reliability and accuracy in insulin delivery
  • Delivery: 1/20 of the current hourly basal rate in 3-minute intervals. This equals 480 doses of insulin per day
