So as you've guessed by now, I have the OneTouch Ping pump. I have the remote that comes with it, but find the display...difficult to deal with. The lady that gave me training on the pump said second or third quarter OT was going to release a color remote that matches the colors of the ping screen, but who wants to wait? My question is, does anyone here know if the UltraSmart remote works with the pump?
Sorry if this has been asked before, I searched UltraSmart and didn't find anything.
I hate the remote... very difficult to see. I even called, complained and said it was defective and they sent me a new one.... just as bad as the first. Surely they know. LOL. If there is a new one... I can't wait.
If You Want To See What The Animas Vibe CGM Looks Like, and See All The Relevant Information About It Including Downloading The User Manual. I have enclosed the UK Website Address Below:
My Advice Is Start Writing Your Congress Person, FDA, And Anyone Else To Get Them To Move There A**. It Is Absolutely Crazy That This Unit Cannot Be Approved In The USA Because The FDA Has Done Nothing About It. Also The Animas USA Staff have No Information Or Release Date On The Vibe CGM.
I just took a look at that site and wow! That looks sharp! It has a cgm built in! That's really cool. I've always said the dex needle is far more painful than it should be, where as the ping has zero pain. I live about two hours from Canada, I might have to make a trip up there ;)
The new ping remote with the color screen is night and day compared to the old one. It is so clear and the scrolling is not as "jumpy" Very smooth scrolling and much quicker to navigate through screens. My friend from Canada has the new remote and I was able to play with it. It made me want to use the remote all the time! So, when it does come out it will be a very good, needed improvement.
I have some information - 1) the ultraSmart does not have a radio to communicate with a pump built in to it :( 2) a color screen Ping remote is available in Canada - tourist for a month to Canada???? Our Fools, Dumbies and A... (FDA) consider a color screen to be a new device and require a short form application for approval. I cannot find out if it is in the approval pipeline or not.
I live like 2 hours from Thunder Bay, ON maybe rent a place there lol.
Sucks about the UltraSmart and this stupid vibe needs to hurry up and get out here in the US!
Thanks for the info though.
