The Ideal Device and MecSense soultion
What is the ideal device?
- The sensor needs to be non-invasive and continuous.
- The sensor needs to be accurate and meet the gold standard for measurements required today for standard invasive glucose sensors (ISO 15197) after calibration.
- The sensor needs to be harmless without complications with potential skin infections.
- The sensor needs to be easy to use so that both children and elderly diabetics may use it.
- The sensor needs to be affordable.
- The person’s location may be found by GPS in case of untreated hypoglycemia automatically alerting next of kin and/or emergency ambulance.
- Data may be transferred automatically to primary physician.
- A non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring device.
- Ease of use: Management focused on ’plug and play’.
- Cost effective for patients and society.
- Less than ± 10% deviation. Present standard is at best ± 15% deviation (ISO 15197).
- Reduced need for calibration compared to existing invasive continuous sensors.
- Alarms and trends.
- Wireless readings.
- The stationary sensor electronics will be miniaturized using ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuit).
