HT_08Teltonika is looking for convenient non-invasive blood sugar measurement method for diabetics people
PROBLEM IN ONE SENTENCE:
Diabetic people do not have convenient non-invasive blood sugar measurement method at hand. All of the current measuring solutions are cumbersome, employ a secondary device that the user has to carry, does not measure continuously.
HOW BIG IS THE PROBLEM:
Current glucose monitors employ invasive methods to measure blood sugar levels. Technology exists that can be used for non-invasive measurements. There were 422 million people diagnosed with diabetes world wide in 2014. All of them have to measure their blood sugar levels invasively. At least 1% of those people not using non-invasive method, means 4.22 million people. This is an estimated 1.26 billion USD loss for our company.
WHOSE PROBLEM IS IT:
Current glucose monitoring methods for the ever-increasing number of diabetic people around the world are invasive, painful, time-consuming, and a constant burden for the household budget. The affected people are not only the patients, but their household too.
Non-invasive measuring is just now emerging into the field, there are not many solutions and of those solutions, none are affordable, convenient or readily available as it would be having it on their wrist.
Wireless transmitters – patches are single use, expensive to manufacture. Wired fingerstalls are cumbersome and inconvenient for the user. PPG technology is not advanced enough to differentiate between glucose and other molecules.
