For decades, researchers, scientists and people living with diabetes have searched for a non-invasive way to continuously measure glucose.
Enter the power of light: C8 MediSensors' optical glucose monitoring technology is a breakthrough in glucose monitoring science. Completely non-invasive, this new technology promises a new glucose monitoring experience.Non invasive glucose
You can't control what you can't see. C8 MediSensors technology is designed to deliver glucose measurements continually throughout your day. As frequently as every five minutes.
Comfortably and modestly monitor your glucose. The adjustable band is fashioned to be worn under the clothes so the monitor can disappear from view. You can get constant glucose measurements with complete discretion.
Continuous readings are sent to your smartphone, so you can see your status at a glance. View 3 hours of readings instantly and 4 months historical readings with the swipe of a finger. Set high and low thresholds for alerts. And have one less bulky item in your pocket.
In clinical studies, the C8 MediSensors Optical Glucose MonitorTM System demonstrated accuracy comparable to published accuracy reports for invasive continuous glucose monitors.
Live your life the way you want to live. The optical monitor is engineered to be worn against the skin on a comfortable band around your abdomen. Remove and replace it at your convenience. Jump in the pool. Once you put the monitor back on, it is designed to automatically start taking readings once it's warmed up.
The C8 MediSensors monitor does not require the constant calibration needed for invasive continuous glucose monitors. However, intended as an adjunct device, it will not completely eliminate the need for finger sticks. Before making any medical decision, confirm your readings with a finger stick.
Optical glucose monitoring leverages decades of technical innovation in optics, wireless, digital cameras, miniaturization and lessons learned from dozens of attempts at measuring glucose non-invasively. Utilizing a patent-protected process, our design will transmit a painless pulse of light into the skin to detect glucose levels. Paired with Bluetooth technology, the glucose reading will be transmitted wirelessly to an easy-to-use display application on an ordinary Android smartphone.A Simple Explanation of
A small light sensitive sensor, worn against the abdomen, will transmit a gentle pulse of light into the skin.
The light will detect glucose molecules so the monitor can measure the concentration of glucose.
The glucose reading is continuously transmitted wirelessly to a display on your smartphone.
After eight years of research and development, we hope to make optical continuous glucose monitoring a reality for people with diabetes. Currently an investigational device and not available for sale, we plan to pursue regulatory approval and make this new technology available in Europe in 2013.
