For millions of diabetics around the world, the continuous glucose monitoring systems are something essential. Imagine if you just lay in your couch, and it pops to your head that you want to check your glucose levels. Until recently, these systems were quite expensive, invasive and unpleasant – unlike SugarBEAT!
SugarBEAT is minimally invasive and inexpensive system for measuring glucose in the blood, created by Sano Intelligence. The SugarBEAT package will have skin patch, which you will have to replace once a day, and a patch sensor that will be placed on it. Oh, and not to forget to mention: it’s completely painless!
Also, Sano Intelligence is working on a really small patch, not bigger than a nicotine patch that will measure not only glucose levels, but also kidney function and electrolyte balance.
It will work with an app on your smart devices, and all the data will be easily transmitted to your doctor or your family.
So, could you imagine just how cool it will be when you eat some piece of cake and your smartphone goes like crazy from too much sugar in your blood? I bet it will be awesome!
Could the patch one day put clinical lab networks like LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics out of business? But, Sano Intelligence won’t stop pushing the limits, and we’re definitely more eager to find out what’s more in store for us!
Sano is currently gearing up for a pilot study with a major research-focused medical institution, and the patch could be ready for release by the middle of the next year. And boy oh boy, I sure can’t wait to get mine!
