Device Manual:
Description:
The Osang Element is an automatic blood glucose meter. Its blood glucose measurement technology has been proven to be accurate, with a 3-star Medaval rating. Measurements are normally taken from the finger but alternative site testing is allowed and it is intended for both professional use and self-measurement.
Assessment:
The technology used in the Osang Element, to measure blood glucose, is among the best rated for accuracy by Medaval Ltd. It has passed in three clinical validation studies, between general and specific populations, according to recognised standard protocols, as published in peer-reviewed publications.
Recommendations:
