Non-invasive, flexible and affordable glucose monitoring

Needle-free, sugarBEAT® offers painless glucose measurement

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.

Key Points:

  • - SugarBEAT® market launch due 2018 initially in United Kingdom, followed shortly thereafter by key European countries
  • - SugarBEAT® price expected to be comparable to cost of using glucose meters and strips
  • - SugarBEAT's® 24 hour patch wear time allows for greater flexibility as compared to competitor glucose monitors which are designed to be continuously worn for 1-2 weeks
  • - SugarBEAT® expected to be non-invasive, painless and needle-free hence appeal to all persons with diabetes, not just those needing to inject insulin
  • - Each patch requires a finger-stick calibration, followed by 30-60 minute warm up, after which glucose readings are taken at five minute intervals for a period up to 24 hours
