MOL is a non-invasive device bangle

MOL by Ian Ortega

MOL
is a non-invasive device, which can constantly monitor the glucose
level in the patients’ blood by sending radiation that permeates the
different layers of the skin in order to feedback with patients´
glucose level. MOL also administer insulin
to the patient in a non-invasive way due to a low-frequency ultrasound
emission, which makes the skin more permeable in order to allow the
insulin molecule pass through the skin pores and get into the blood
stream.

Very Brief GlucoBand Update

Glucoband_sm The GlucoBand lives! I was able to contact the company, Calisto Medical, today. Hoorah! An unnamed executive was willing to share the following and nothing else:

1) The product is still in development, and being carefully studied for effectiveness.

2) They are now targetting the end of 2007 for potential widespread availability.

3) They’re hoping to make the product affordable enough for every average patient. (As you know, insurance reimbursement always lags on new products of this sort.)

Do not expect any public demonstrations of the product before launch time. But if this non-invasive wristband glucose meter really works better than its predecessor, the failed GlucoWatch, then man, are we going to celebrate!!

The Noninvasive Dream

The GlucoWatch Biographer, acclaimed by its manufacturer, Cygnus, as the first noninvasive meter, isn’t. The company itself admits that it causes most people to have mild to moderate skin irritation. Some people get blisters and others get redness or itching. The GlucoWatch works through a process called reverse iontophoresis. This process allows the meter to collect glucose samples through the skin by applying an extremely low electric current.

That’s one of many technical approaches. The major current approaches include using the entire spectrum of the near infrared and multivariate analysis to extract glucose information from tissue. These include active investigators like InLight Solutions (formerly Rio Grande Medical Technologies), LifeTrac Systems, NIR Diagnostics (formerly CME Telemetrix), Oculir, and Sensys Medical (formerly Instrumentation Metrics), plus the ill-fated Futrex.

The diabetics now have their own cell phone – Infopia LG Glucophone

Arpita:

lg-glucometer-phone_JVAGO_5965

Way back in 2002, LG had released the KP8400 cell phone in Korea with an inbuilt glucometer for measuring blood glucose level. Users could place a drop of blood on a strip that in turn would be placed in a special reader on the phone to get the insulin and blood readings on the phone’s display. Now, the LG phone for the diabetics will get a wider and better diabetic control usage courtesy the glucophone developed by the Infopia of USA. The LG phone will work alongside Infobia’s Eocene diabetic management system that will ease the task of blood glucose management. The results of the blood tests will be sent to a secure server that graphs and manages the disease, sets up automatic texts of results and creates reminder alarms. For the diabetics the glucophone is not just a simple cell phone but an indispensable life saving device.
