KIT THAT'S COMING SOON...

MEET SUGARBEAT

SugarBEAT consists of a daily

disposable skin-patch. Passing

a mild, non-perceptible electric

current across the skin, the

patented technology draws

a small amount of selected

molecules, such as glucose,

out of the interstitial fluid. Via a

sensor, the patch measures the

amount of that molecule present,

converting it into a meaningful

concentration value for clinical

diagnosis or preliminary

guidance for self-treatment.

Nemaura Medical, based in

Loughborough, UK, now has European

regulatory (CE) approval to introduce

its SugarBEAT continuous glucose

monitoring system by the end of 2016.

The package includes a daily disposable

skin patch and an adhesive sensor that

sticks over it, and a smartphone running

the SugarBEAT app or a smartwatch, or

on the SugarBEAT standalone reader.

The patch sticks painlessly to the skin,

whether to the arm, leg, or abdomen. It

does require an old-fashioned finger prick

test to calibrate it once it's stuck on. The

electronic sensor powers the sensing

every five minutes, gathering readings and

passing them on to the smartphone or

SugarBEAT reader. From there the results

can be shared with one's doctor, family

members, or carers. Suitable for Type

1 and Type 2 diabetics, SugarBEAT is

designed to be a non-invasive, affordable

glucose monitoring system. Combining

patented technology with a small

electronic device, SugarBEAT provides

real-time monitoring for better diabetes

health management.

Approximately 1mm thick, and

designed to conform to the body

for enhanced patient comfort and

compliance, the SugarBEAT patch offers a

convenient way to track blood sugar levels

throughout the day. Connected to a small

electronic sensor, the SugarBEAT patch

can take a sensor measurement every

five minutes from the body's interstitial

fluid, drawn from the skin. This clinical

relevant data can be securely transmitted

via Bluetooth to quickly display real-time

glucose readings on your smartwatch or

smartphone via the SugarBEAT App. The

aim is to allow people with diabetes to

better manage their condition through a

greater understanding of lifestyle factors

that affect their blood glucose levels. It will

be possible to set alarms for high and low

blood glucose levels and help prevent or

delay long-term medical complications.

Replacing traditional invasive methods

of diagnosis and healthcare observation

procedures, the proprietary technology

platform, known as BEAT, will allow for

close monitoring of chronic diseases and

health conditions, remotely.

Coming how soon?

Nemaura Medical expects to release

the system in early 2017 in Europe.

Speaking on their behalf, Bashir Timol,

Director of Business Strategy for

Nemaura Medical, says, "we are aiming

to be taking orders in Q1 2017. We've

done all the necessary clinical testing and

have already responded to feedback.

The imagery shows that there's not only

a watch, but that users can choose to

see the date on their smartphones if they

prefer. It's helped that regulators have

now accepted smartphones as data

receivers not just dedicated readers. It's

an improved version that's coming to

market."

To be clear, is SugarBEAT CGM?

Timol clarifies, "SugarBEAT comprises

a patch connected to a miniaturised

sensor, Bluetooth and a battery all

within the casing of the patch. The

exact classification will be decided by

the regulators. Whilst SugarBEAT takes

a reading every 5 minutes, you access

the app in order to see the readings.
