The biosensor is clinically proven to be accurate, stable and consistent for up to 14 days. Soon after the insertion of a biosensor, there are physiological processes that happen as the biosensor and the body equilibrate. These processes are part of the body's natural response to the biosensor insertion. The equilibration process can vary from one person to another and may not always happen in the same manner for any one person. Therefore, we have decided to let the biosensor equilibrate for 1 hour to ensure that the system is providing accurate glucose readings.
The biosensor can be worn while bathing, showering, swimming or exercise. The biosensor has been tested to with stand immersion in up to one metre (3 ft) of water for up to 30 minutes.
