Six devices were validated in the study (the Roche Accu-Chek Aviva Nano, the Roche Accu-Chek Mobile, the Roche Accu-Chek Performa Nano, the Ascensia Contour Next Link 2.4, the Abbott FreeStyle Lite and the J&J LifeScan OneTouch Verio IQ). According to the abstract, one of them failed but it does not state which one.

Comparison in children and adolescents with T1DM (aged 4 to 18 years) (along with the Roche Accu-Chek Mobile and the Bayer Contour Next Link) to the Abbott FreeStyle Libre Flash (n=17). Authors conclude reasonable agreement but with large interindividual variability and that further studies in children are imperative.

Given the struggles that many patients have with ongoing adherence, motivation, health literacy and/or numeracy, the newer BGMS features described in this article represent important tools which may help HCPs better communicate with their patients on how to both understand their BG data and encourage appropriate self-management from their patients.
