Sometime back in one of my posts, we have discussed about no prick blood sugar checking device.
I had booked a No Prick Blood sugar Gadget which was delivered to me yesterday.
I can check the following vital parameters with the help of the gadget.
(1) BP and Heart rate !
(2) Blood Oxygen level -Spo2.. This is an important parameter as many respiratory diseases like Covid19 can lower blood oxygen level.
(3) Body Temperature contact less: by the help of infrared sensor
(4) No Prick Blood Sugar
(1) , (2) & (3) readings are coming accurate..I checked by other alternate devices.. (4) Blood sugar - the accuracy is within 10%. For example , my blood sugar by the conventional glucometer was 94. But this one is showing 104..
The device has a light emitting diode (LED) as a source of illumnating light and a PPG Sensor adjacent to the LED. You need to place the tip of your middle finger firmly above the light and the sensor. When the light falls on the skin , some light is reflected and some absorbed. The PPG Sensor picks up this change in reflection / absorption of light and computes the blood sugar within seconds. The system is calibrated based on a set of data on a large number of people for light absorption data corresponding to blood sugar readings by checking both invasive and non - invasive with this device.
Though I found variation within 10 % , but it gives a trend.
The product is at a Beta stage and improvements being made to bring in more accuracy....it is supposed to be fully launched within next 6 months....where they would be charging Rs 500 per month towards blood sugar checking...this price is waived for Beta stage customers.
The device is wifi en-abled and the device software gets updated continuously.
The company is a Delhi based software company....and their portable pocket size ECG device has become very popular and used by leading hospitals in India and abroad.
