Globally, diabetes is one of the most common diseases. Frequent monitoring of glucose levels is essential for optimal disease handling. Glucose sensors are very niche, only used by a subset of diabetes type I patients. The team wants to provide accessible glucose measurement for everyone. MedCore wants to reduce the costs, invasiveness and introversion of glucose monitoring, compared to current monitoring methods.
The product consists of a patch with microneedles to measure the glucose levels of diabetics. The software behind the patch enables the patient to continuously monitor glucose levels, without invasion into their skin or lives. The product distinguishes itself from other glucose sensors by its openness. It can easily be used in conjunction with other diabetes-related devices and managed from a smartphone. By using microneedles, the sensor is less invasive for the patient.
