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.
- 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 better manage their condition through a greater understanding of lifestyle factors that affect their blood glucose levels, thereby helping prevent or delay long term medical complications.
