This unit has a small sensor that transmits glucose values wirelessly to the STS receiver. The receiver displays glucose readings averaged over five minutes as well as one-, three-, and nine-hour trends. It alerts you to high or low levels. It has to be calibrated with LifeScan's One Touch Ultra 2 blood glucose meter, and it must be recalibrated with a finger-stick glucose test at least every 12 hours.
The meter is meant to detect trends and track patterns in adults 18 or older. It hasn't been tested in children, adolescents, or pregnant women.
