The OneTouch Verio meter is designed to provide the user with as much information as possible, at a glance, without the need to navigate through menus. On testing with a blood sample, a colour coded range indicator helps the patient understand whether their glucose result is low, in-range or high. Furthermore, the meter will look for patterns and advise of trends in high or low glucose levels to warn the user. Progress notes will also display automatically to re-assure the user that they have been doing well with the control of their diabetes. The meter is designed to sit comfortably in one hand with side buttons for ease of operation with the thumb. Finally, a high resolution colour display makes it easy for the user to read the information on the screen. All these factors contribute to helping the user understand their diabetes better so that they can better manage their condition.
