Nemaura Develops Rechargeable Transmitter for sugarBEAT®
Nemaura Medical Inc. (OTCQB: NMRD), a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of sugarBEAT®, a wireless adhesive skin-patch for adjunctive use by diabetics as a non-invasive and needle-free continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system announced today that it has developed a slimmer sugarBEAT® transmitter with a built in rechargeable battery. This new format is expected to lower costs for users given it removes the need for disposable batteries.
sugarBEAT® consists of a disposable skin patch connected to a reusable transmitter, with a mobile app displaying glucose readings.
Dr. Faz Chowdhury, Chairman and CEO of Nemaura commented “It is our plan to make sugarBEAT® affordable for all diabetics, including those using test strips and meters to manage their glucose levels.”
A predecessor sugarBEAT® device has previously been granted CE approval. sugarBEAT® is due to commence clinical trials shortly with anticipated launch in the UK later this year.
