SugarBEAT®

Achieve better glucose control 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® comprises:

  • - Reusable sensor (shown above) containing daily-disposable adhesive skin-patch

  • - 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 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.
