We believe in providing choice so that your patients can select the best pump to suit their needs. Smart Choice is the option of two Accu-Chek insulin pump systems, Accu-Chek Combo and Accu-Chek Insight,* complemented by a comprehensive support programme.
When your patient switches to either Accu-Chek insulin pump, they will have a smart control handset, which means they don’t need to touch the pump to deliver a bolus or set other functions. It can simply be tucked away.
