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!!
