Addressing a global pandemic

With over 420 million diabetes worldwide and the number of prediabetes 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 throughout the day.

sugarBEAT® is expected to help person with diabetes and prediabetes better 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.

Glucose Monitoring: How it works

Glucose molecules are drawn out of the interstitial fluid which naturally sits just below the top layer of skin, into a (sensing) chamber within a disposable adhesive patch.

A rechargeable transmitter which sits on top of the sensing chamber measures the glucose levels present within the chamber, and securely transmits this  data every five minutes via Bluetooth to a smart phone App.

Using a proprietary algorithm, the app then converts this data into glucose values. In order to better understand how glucose levels are affected by lifestyle factors, diet / medication / exercise / mood data can also be inputted into the app.

Key Points

  • - sugarBEAT® will be available to purchase online from our UK & Ireland distributor in early 2020. It is already available free of charge directly from Nemaura Medical as part of the first phase of a commercial launch.
  • - sugarBEAT® daily price expected to be comparable to cost of using glucose meters and strips
  • - sugarBEAT® daily 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 prediabetes
  • - Each patch requires a 30 to 60 minute warm up, after which glucose readings are taken at five minute intervals throughout the day
  • - sugarBEAT® can additionally be used by insulin using persons with diabetes as an adjunctive glucose monitoring device when calibrated by using finger stick readings
