SugarBEAT®

Accurate, pain-free continuous blood glucose monitoring.

Non-invasive, SugarBEAT® offers real-time, needle-free 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® comprises:

  • - Daily disposable adhesive skin-patch integrated with reusable Bluetooth enabled sensor

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

  • - Optional SugarBEAT® handheld reader (applicable where user elects not to use own smart device)

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.

Approximately 1mm thick, and designed to conform to the body for enhanced patient comfort and compliance, the SugarBEAT® patch offers a convenient way to track blood sugar levels throughout the day.

Connected to a small electronic sensor, the SugarBEAT® patch can take a sensor measurement every five minutes from the body’s interstitial fluid, drawn from the skin.

This clinical relevant data can be securely transmitted via Bluetooth to quickly display real-time glucose readings on your smartwatch or smartphone via the SugarBEAT® App.

SugarBEAT® will enable diabetes sufferers to better manage their condition through a greater understanding of lifestyle factors that affect their blood glucose levels, as well as the ability to set alarms for high and low blood glucose levels and help prevent or delay long term medical complications.
