Fullerton, CA (PRWEB) September 6, 2007
A new use has been found for an age old device called "Volvelles" also known as information wheels or wheel charts. Volvelles were first used in the 14th century to measure, record and calculate almost everything. Wheel charts are a circular version of the slide chart. A wheel chart typically consists of two or more round discs connected at the center with a grommet. When the discs are rotated, information is made available to the user.
Today in this age of computers, where large amounts of information can be quickly accessed on line, these decidedly low-tech devices are actually thriving, primarily because they are handy, informative and easy to use. Now the wheel chart has found a new use as a way for diabetics to keep track of glucose testing and/or insulin injection site usage.
Rotating site choices reduces the incidences of bruising, soreness & infections. It will also assist in the prevention of scar tissue formation that can occur due to overuse of any one testing or injection site. According to the American Diabetes Association -- Diabetes Care "rotation of the injection site is important to prevent lipohypertrophy or lipoatrophy" and diabetics are also urged "not to perform blood glucose testing on the same finger all the time."
The © EZ Site Tracker™ wheel chart from Anthony & Associates is a compact (3 1/2" diameter) wheel reference chart that will fit inside most testing/injection kits. It is constructed of 24 pt coated & hardened paperboard with a nickel plated metal grommet center. There are three discs. The two outside discs revolve around the center disc. Side1: Choice of 20 glucose testing sites. Side 2: Choice of 20 insulin injection areas.
