PAGE HIGHLIGHTS

  • Benefits of the new enhanced Enlite Sensor for continuous glucose monitoring

 Enlite Sensor

OUR COMPLETE SYSTEM FOR BETTER PROTECTION AND GLUCOSE CONTROL1

When combining Continuous Glucose monitoring with the MiniMed® 640G System and the new Guardian 2 Link transmitter, patients will benefit from:

  • Improvement in sensor accuracy in all glycaemic ranges2
  • The intelligence of SmartGuard®, offering hypoglycaemia protection by automatically stopping insulin delivery when sensor glucose is predicted to approach a pre-set low limit (*)
  • 83% of users felt more confident in managing highs and lows when wearing their CGM system3

 

Enhanced features for a great comfort and experience

  • Smaller and more flexible sensor: 80% reduction in size compared to the former Enlite Sensor
  • The New Generation Enlite sensor features an innovation to the sensor adhesive patch to help reduce skin irritations
  • More reliable sensor to transmitter connection, which can reduce the likelihood of data gaps. In the event of a lost connection between the sensor and the transmitter, the new Guardian 2 Link transmitter can store up to 10 hours of data

Insertion is easy

  • One button insertion process
  • Hidden needle during insertion
  • 90 degree insertion angle
  • 85% of patients agreed that insertion with Enlite was pain free**

CGM REDUCES HbA1c AND IMPROVES GLYCAEMIC CONTROL

Several randomised controlled trials1,4,5 showed that CGM can lead to:

  • Up to 1% HbA1c reduction without increasing the rate of severe hypoglycaemia
  • Tighter glycaemic control
  • Greater number of patients reaching the HbA1c target recommended by the American Diabetes Association  (ADA)

All of these benefits can help you to achieve better control of your diabetes.
