Product advantages

Advantages compared to traditional measuring with lancing devices

Continuous glucose monitoring has many advantages for the patient and his/her lifestyle:

  • Considerable reduction in frequency of conventional blood glucose measuring and therefore reduction in symptoms of painful fingers and numbness of the fingertips
  • Prompt warning and prediction of hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia, thus avoiding critical life-threatening situations and late onset complications.
  • A better, more intuitive comprehension of the body’s reaction to differing foods and activities leading to a better compliance to normal blood glucose value ranges.
  • The future possibility of an automatic closed loop system together with an insulin pump-automatic monitoring and adjusted insulin delivery.

Advantages compared to current commercially available continuous monitoring systems

  • Longer sensor lifetime: 1 month instead of 5-7 days
  • Increased measuring precision and accuracy
  • Fewer false alarms
  • Affordable production and therefore lower costs for the patient and health insurance.

These advantages are achieved through our innovative biosensor, which is considerably more compatible and read out via a sensitive fiber optic as opposed to electrochemically.
