Does Comfort Curve Really Work?
Accu-Chek Comfort Curve Test Strips are used for diabetes. The curved shape fits snugly on one’s finger and permits a flow of blood to be placed on it, they say. Another plus, they claim, is that it only requires a small sample size. Plus, its capillary action pulls the blood onto the test strip. This, they claim, renders the blood testing procedure less painful and overall simplifies the process. Ordinarily when strips are touched, another test has to be done. But Accu-Chek Comfort Curve Test Strips are specially made so they can be touched and still give an accurate test, they claim. They add that the indicator window aids determining if there is enough blood for a good test. When the yellow indicator window is full, the strip has enough blood. If it is not full one may add more blood up to 15 seconds later, sparing more painful retesting, they say. The electrodes with palladium which give added security that the results are reliable and true, they say, even when the temperature is extreme, ranging from 57 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
