Garmin

integrates

Dexcom

Garmin has introduced apps that

connect with the Dexcom G6,

providing people with diabetes who

use the CGM with a way to quickly

see their glucose levels and spot

trends. The Dexcom Connect IQ

apps, developed by Garmin, make it

easy for people with diabetes to keep

an eye on their glucose numbers at

any time, even while working out,

right on their compatible Garmin

smartwatch or cycling computer

Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President

of global consumer sales "Dexcom's

CGM systems have revolutionised

how people live with diabetes, and

we are thrilled to offer our customers

an even more convenient way to see

their glucose levels. Users can not

only see which way their glucose

levels are trending without having

to take their phone out, but can

even do so while working out, when

glucose levels have the potential to

fluctuate quickly."

New offices for Afon

Women take

up telehealth

While women are more likely

than men to visit doctors and use

healthcare services in general,

a study finds that telehealth

seems to be uniquely attractive to

women, writes Rebecca Pifer for

MedTechDive. The convenience of

virtual care is beneficial for carers

- a historically female role - and

the pandemic has seen many carers

using virtual care to triage needs

for their loved ones and themselves,

experts say. As a result, start-ups

have cropped up over the last 18

months, creating a booming growth

in the 'femtech' sector, raising $1.3bn

across 26 deals.

Special guests spoke of the

potentially 'life changing' product

being developed at Welsh diabetes

company Afon Technology during

the official opening of its new

headquarters. The company has

recently relocated from Chepstow

to Caldicot, with the new, bigger

premises allowing the company to

expand its workforce, develop its

state-of-the-art lab equipment and

add a pilot production line.

The company is developing what

could be the world's first noninvasive,

real-time and continuous

blood glucose sensor. The sensor is

being designed to sit on the inside

of the wrist and uses Bluetooth

technology to send real-time

information to a companion app,

which will display the wearer's

blood glucose trends and alerts

them to high/low glucose levels.

In June, Afon unveiled images of its

pioneering sensor, which is set to

undergo another round of clinical

trials amid hopes it will be available

to purchase from the end of 2022.

The visitors to Afon's new

premises got to see the technology

in action, with demonstrations

Afon CEO Dr Sabih Chaudhry gives a sneak preview

of a prototype to visitors.

including the design and production

of the printed circuit boards used in

Afon's technology, electromagnetic

simulations, product design and

3D modelling, data processing and

algorithms. The presentation was by

Afon CEO Dr Sabih Chaudhry who

said, "We were delighted to welcome

our special guests to Afon's new

offices and laboratory, and to share

with them the exciting technological

advances we are making which will

improve the lives of people with

diabetes. We are proud to be putting

Monmouthshire - and Wales - on the

map, and our new premises reflect

the ambition we have for the future."
