Smartwatch: Many people use different instruments to measure blood glucose. After collecting the blood by boiling the needle, the amount of glucose is tested. But many people are afraid to pierce the needle. Entrepreneurs are creating new smartwatches to solve this problem. It can be used to know the amount of glucose using sweat.
This wearable glucose monitor device is called ‘Hela’. The organizers of the project have announced the details of the project on the crowdfunding site Indigogo to raise money to create the new smart device. Technology website Geeky Gadgets reported the information.
It is easy to measure glucose from sweat. Sweating a drop on the device will take out the amount of glucose from it.
Hela is basically a special device that can be used to determine glucose levels, heart rate, blood pressure and lactic acid levels. In addition to this, it can also be worn on the hand as a normal smartwatch. Its promoters say it is the first wearable device that does not require a needle to measure glucose.
The amount of money that the entrepreneurs wanted to raise for the project called Hela has been successful. Now the entrepreneurs are taking the project forward. Their goal is to release the new smartwatch in the market next month.
Entrepreneurs expect the smartwatch to be a wearable glucose monitor as well. It is easy to measure glucose from sweat. Sweating a drop on the device will take out the amount of glucose from it. Its technology is patented. It only takes three seconds.
If you put sweat on the sensor while exercising or working, you can know the result from it. If the monitor shows a green circle, the body is OK. Showing a red circle will show more glucose. The sensor can be changed if necessary. A sensor will work for 14 days.
