Blood Glucose, Control of Blood Sugar Level is a Difficult and Repetitive Task for People with Diabetes.In the field of Connected smart Health, Scientists Strive to Design a Smart Device Called E-Mosquito which will control the blood sugar level in diabetics. It is indeed a wearable in the shape of a connected watch that will take a blood sample from the patient to make a quick analysis without it feels the slightest bit. The product is not yet commercialized, many details remain unknown about it.
E-Mosquito, the connected device that controls Blood Sugar Level
Hyperglycemia or hypoglycaemia are ailments that are recorded every day in diabetics, even more when it comes to taking blood samples to check the level of sugar in their blood. Thus, in order to relieve some of these patients, scientists have set up a project that will soon be implemented. It is a connected device called E-Mosquito by the University of Calgary (electronic mosquito in French) that aims to change the method used by diabetics to control their blood glucose.
The electronic mosquito, a new wearable that plans to revolutionize the way diabetics control their blood sugar (blood sugar). For them, it is an obligation. Hypoglycemia (not enough sugar) or hyperglycemia (too much sugar) can have serious consequences for their health in the short term but also in the long term. They must therefore prick with small needles several times a day.
In fact, instead of the patient pricking himself with small needles at each blood sample, this connected device, as transportable as a smart watch will take control of the operation to help control at any time its blood sugar, and this, with more precision. Its mode of operation is summed up to take and analyze a blood sample of the patient on request of it. After analysis, the results obtained will be transferred to the smartphone of the concerned; all this will be without major pain.
We regret the choice of the name, after all we rarely associate the mosquito to something positive. But it seems terribly well adapted. His concept is simple. The device can take a sample of blood on demand and analyze it. The result is then sent to a smartphone. E-Mosquito can also be programmed to run tests at specific times. The test needle changes with a small refill. For now, this project is still far from marketable but while they have been working on it for more than 10 years, the progress made is significant. The goal is also to have a use beyond diabetes, for the detection of cancer or genetic problems. An ambition that fits clearly into the current trend of disease detection through connected objects the current trend of disease detection through connected objects.
In appearance, one might think that it is a real commercial niche. But in fact, the market is huge and projects are multiplying in recent months. With 415 million people suffering from diabetes around the world, companies are aware of the potential. As we explained to you a few weeks ago, connected objects can help them in many ways connected objects can help them in many ways. Facilitating bites, avoiding the risk of amputation or anticipating its appearance are all solutions that companies and scientists are currently working on. They are supported by patients who are very involved and above all very connected. According to projections, the number of diabetics should explode in the coming years so the phenomenon should increase.
