Addressing a global pandemic
With over 420 million diabetics worldwide and the number of pre-diabetics at almost three times this number, diabetes is a global healthcare concern.
Combining clinical research with patient-friendly technology, sugarBEAT® is expected to deliver a non-invasive, affordable and flexible method of tracking blood glucose for better diabetes management.
SugarBEAT® consists of a disposable adhesive skin-patch connected to a rechargeable transmitter, with an app displaying glucose readings.
How it works
Using a small disposable patch painlessly stuck onto a user’s arm, leg or abdomen, sugarBEAT® measures the body’s glucose levels via the skin.
Connected to a rechargeable transmitter, the sugarBEAT® patch can take a sensor measurement every five minutes from the body’s interstitial fluid, drawn from the skin.
This clinically relevant data can be securely streamed via Bluetooth to a pre-downloaded app on user’s own smart device, and optionally forwarded onto healthcare professionals.
SugarBEAT® is expected to help diabetics achieve better glucose control through a greater understanding of lifestyle factors, thereby helping prevent or delay long term medical complications.
