SugarBEAT®

Better manage glucose through pain-free, non-invasive continuous monitoring

Needle-free, sugarBEAT® offers accurate 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 an accurate, non-invasive, convenient, low cost and disposable method of tracking blood glucose for better diabetes management.

SugarBEAT® consists of:

  • - Disposable adhesive skin-patch connected to rechargeable transmitter (shown above)

  • - SugarBEAT® app pre-downloaded on user’s smart device (watch / phone / tablet)

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.

Designed to conform to the body for enhanced patient comfort and compliance, sugarBEAT® offers a convenient way to track blood sugar levels throughout the day.

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® will enable diabetics to achieve better glucose control through a greater understanding of lifestyle factors, thereby helping prevent or delay long term medical complications.
