Looks interesting! Anyone know more? Looks like they were at the 9th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting, San Francisco, CA, USA.
Wow! No lancets & no strips to buy!
Yeah! I would think insureances would love this, with less or no more strips to cover! This makes me excited!
It looks appealing: non-invasive, no consumables to buy, only have to wear a “personal ear clip,” calibration only needed about once per month. Since I have patiently followed the promise of countless continuous glucose measurement products over the last 15 years, I won’t hold my breath.
From their website:
"Question: When will the device be ready to commercialization?
Answer: We expect GlucoTrack to be ready for commercialization (after achieving CE Mark) in the European market in mid 2010, and about a year later in the USA market, after FDA Approval."
There are many hoops left to jump through. I wish them luck. In the meantime I am pleased to be able to use current CGMS technology that is here today.
I think this would be great, I am a type 2 but I test about 10 to 11 times a day and my fingers would welcome the technology
Hope there’s no lobbying against this by the US meter companies. They’re going to lose millions in strip sales.
