Avoid areas with scars, moles, stretch marks or lumps. Select an area of skin that generally stays flat during your normal daily activities with no bending or folding. Choose a site that is at least 2.5cm (1”) away from an insulin injection site.
An alcohol wipe is a good way of cleaning the skin, but make sure you’re not using a moisturising alcohol wipe as this will prevent the sensor from sticking properly. Make sure you fully dry your skin before applying the sensor.
The sensor kit comes in two parts: the sensor applicator and the sensor pack.
Caution: Do not use if the sensor pack or the sensor applicator seem to be damaged or already opened. Do not use if past expiration date.
Place the sensor application into the open sensor pack. Line up the dark mark on the applicator with the mark on the pack and press down firmly on the sensor applicator until it comes to a stop.
