My 8 year old daughter's been using the animas ping for 4 years and the warranty's expired, so were looking at alternatives, like the accu-chek combo system. We really like having the Ping meter/remote and had to go without it when she was in a clinical trial that used the Medtronic 530g with Enlite CGM. We dislike the 530g/enlite setup for several reasons, big ones being the lack of the meter/remote and the enlite didn't match the accuracy we get with our Dex G4.
The closest ping alternative is the Accu-chek system and it looks like an improvement over the Animas Ping. The advanced features and analysis functions on the Aviva meter/remote look great and you don't need to access the pump to do basal changes etc.
Does anyone have experience using the Accu-Chek pump and remote, especially for your child? If so, what's your opinion? It doesn't have an established track record like the Animas or Medtronic pumps so any advice would be great!
