SugarBEAT®

Improve blood sugar management

Moving beyond A1c towards glucose trending

SugarBEAT® is a glucose trending device designed to help all persons with diabetes and pre-diabetics to better manage their glucose levels

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 daily disposable adhesive skin-patch connected to a rechargeable transmitter, with an app displaying glucose readings every five minutes for periods up to 24 hours.

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 person with diabetes and pre-diabetics easily track how lifestyle factors can impact daily glucose level trends  (known as an Ambulatory Glucose Profile) thereby significantly improving the amount of daily time spent in range. This behavioural change in turn should help delay or even prevent long term health damage typically caused by diabetes.


Key Points:

  • - SugarBEAT® market launch due 2018 initially in United Kingdom, followed shortly thereafter by key European countries
  • - SugarBEAT® daily price expected to be comparable to cost of using glucose meters and strips
  • - SugarBEAT's® 24 hour patch wear time allows for greater flexibility, with users able to wear on a non-consecutive day basis, unlike other glucose monitors which are designed to be continuously worn for 10-14 days
  • - SugarBEAT® expected to be non-invasive, painless and needle-free glucose trending device hence appeal to all persons with diabetes and pre-diabetics
  • - Each patch requires a 30-60 minute warm up, after which glucose readings are taken at five minute intervals for a period up to 24 hours
  • - SugarBEAT® can additionally be used by insulin using persons with diabetes as an adjunctive glucose monitoring device when calibrated by a finger stick reading
