About the FreeStyle Brand

The FreeStyle butterfly symbolises hope and renewal, and now it is the inspiration for FreeStyle brand. Lively and carefree, butterflies first find their wings after a time of great personal change. They learn their lives are different now. The comforts of one way of life are behind them, they learn to fly, and they are not alone.

This transformation is much like the kind made by everyone who finds the courage to live life to the fullest while dealing with diabetes. The FreeStyle butterfly reflects this desire as well as our commitment to your patients.

Through our products and services, we partner with you and your patients to help bring a sense of personal progress, so patients can reach new heights and get more out of life than ever thought possible.
