In July I received a pm to our Facebook page from Forward Design. They make a band to hold your sensor secure on your arm, price is roughly €30 – €35 depending on model and color.
Initially I thought, yes, great idea for the Libre wearers who are having difficulty keeping a sensor in place either on their own arm or the arm of a child, but my sensor is an Enlite.
The enlite sensor is recommended to be worn on the tummy area but I had decided to try it on my arm for a change and join those who were clearly spreading awareness and making a statement about their Type 1 Tech.
To my delight the accuracy was amazing and even tighter than when worn on my tummy.
Shane from forward design asked me to send him a sensor & transmitter as I would wear it and with his printing technology he said he would make me one for my enlite and I was thrilled at the possibility of being like all the other sensor wearers.
