Why may people with diabetes experience problems with their feet?

In a person with diabetes, sustained high blood glucose levels over a long

period of time can cause damage to the nerve systems in the body, including

those in your feet. 1

neuropad® tests for insuffi cient sweating which is an

early sign of nerve damage, putting feet at risk of

ulceration. The pad starts off blue and should turn

completely pink after 10 minutes' application. If any blue

remains, this indicates that your feet are not producing

enough sweat (anhydrosis) - medically, this is known

as sudomotoric dysfunction. 2

created 3-5 mm under the skin into which

the sensor is inserted using a special

insertion tool. The insertion is then closed

with steri-strips.

The implanted sensor (see image on

the right) is powered wirelessly by the

transmitter placed on the arm directly over

the sensor. The Eversense mobile app

can send the data wirelessly to a cloudbased application allowing the data to

be shared with the caregiver or diabetes

healthcare team. The sensor is removed in

the clinic using local anaesthetic. Another

sensor can then be inserted into the same

place. Alternatively, the incision is closed

using steri-strips if a new sensor is to be

inserted at a fresh location.

Once implanted, the implantable

Eversense sensor provides accurate

glucose data for up to 180 days. The

transmitter placed on the skin above the

sensor is removable and rechargeable.

It sends data to a smartphone app.

The Eversense smart transmitter is low

profile, lightweight and easy to wear

under clothing, being secured to the skin

using adhesive tape. It is water resistant

too. The smart transmitter powers the

sensor, calculates the glucose values

and direction and rate of change. It also

provides on-body vibration alerts even

the smartphone is not nearby or switched

off. The Eversense mobile app displays

the sensor glucose data from the smart

transmitter, displaying the current glucose

value every 5 minutes and displays where

the glucose is headed and how fast.

Eversense implantable CGM will

become available in due course, and we

will we report further when it is available.
