Integrity Applications has developed a non-invasive blood glucose monitor The device utilizes a patented combination of ultrasonic, electromagnetic, and thermal technologies which measure three distinct criteria to provide an accurate blood glucose measurement GlucoTrack enables diabetics (Type 1 and 2) to measure their blood glucose levels without drawing blood. A small sensor clips comfortably to the ear lobe while blood glucose level is calculated using a proprietary algorithm and displayed on hand held device the size of a smart phone.
GlucoTrack removes the two most significant barriers to frequent monitoring of blood glucose levels by diabetics: pain (the device is non-invasive) and cost (no disposables are required). All diabetics would benefit from a device that does not require pricking their finger and draw blood each time they want to measure blood glucose level. Nurses and caregivers for infants (later stage), children, and elderly patients will also immediately recognize the appeal of GlucoTrack’s non-invasive nature.
Integrity Applications’ GlucoTrack model DF-F has been proven for safety and performances for patients in clinical studies conducted by third party, under the supervision of leading diabetes authorities at the Soroka University Medical Center in Israel. The device has gained a CE-Mark approval in June 2013.
