KWatch Glucose: A Wearable Painless Continuous Glucose Monitoring Smartwatch

Project description

A smart, painless device to track glucose levels

Only 20 % of the estimated 100 million people who should be monitoring their blood glucose levels (GL) several times a day actually do it correctly. One reason for this is that the monitoring devices used today may cause pain and are too expensive. The EU-funded K’Watch Glucose project will offer a solution to this problem by introducing to the European and US markets a novel monitoring system – K'Watch Glucose. The system, which consists of a smartwatch and a consumable patch, enables minimally invasive, continuous, painless GL self-monitoring. An innovative technology permits high accuracy of GL measurements without blood sampling thanks to a biosensor array made of micro needles. The solution will offer the first convenient, constant GL monitoring method, effectively preventing complications caused by hypoglycaemia.
