The Israeli company OrSense has developed a new non-invasive technology for monitoring blood glucose levels for diabetes.
Over 200 million people suffer from diabetes worldwide, with as much as 20 million diabetes in the United States alone. There is no known cure for diabetes and patients rely on constant monitoring to maintain acceptable blood glucose levels. OrSense’s technology, which is known as Occlusion Spectroscopy, uses a non-invasive optical measurement platform combined with a ring-shaped cuff. Nowadays, diabetic watches (also know as the glucose watch) are designed to be worn on the wrist just like a wristwatch. Besides being painless, and it has no side effects, the devices can be used at any time of day and as regularly as you wish. Here at Diabetes Healthy Solutions, we are monitoring the advancements in technology closely, with regard to Diabetic Watches so visit us regularly for further updates. I’ll try and help you with any latest developments or approvals as soon as I have any new information. I will include a link here for you direct to the glucowise site – the particular device is still currently in development and will be available to purchase once clinical trials are completed expected sometime late 2016.
Unfortunately, to my knowledge, there is no FDA approved device on the market as yet – but lets hope it won’t be too far away!
Echo Therapeutics, has achieved positive results from a clinical feasibility study of its Symphony transdermal continuous glucose monitoring therapy. The accuracy of the monitoring device was compared with reference samples from a bench top blood glucose analyzer.
Using over 1,600 Symphony tCGM glucose readings from the 12 study subjects paired with reference blood glucose measurements, CG-EGA showed that 98.3% of the readings were clinically accurate, There were no adverse events reported from the Prelude skin permeation or the Symphony tCGM biosensor.

The new technology will completely eliminate the need to draw blood, an ordeal that millions of people suffering from this incurable disease have to go through several times a day. Years of research have  established a strong link between obesity and diabetes (especially Type 2 diabetes). The pressure applied by the cuff temporarily occludes the blood flow in the finger, creating new blood dynamics which generate a strong optical signal, yielding a high blood specific signal-to-noise ratio.

This is a non invasive procedure where the monitor checks the level of blood glucose by inducing a painless electric shock that draws interstitial fluids from the skin pores in order for the to obtain the blood glucose level. The monitor records the readings and it can also be set to alarm in case the readings are too low or too high. Ease of use The display should be large enough in order for results to be clearly displayed and avoid reading errors. Memory In case you want to store the history of your blood sugar readings your diabetes monitoring device must have the memory function. GlucoTrack This device was developed by Integrity Application and it uses three main technologies: conductivity, heat capacity and ultrasonic.
Symphony Symphony was developed by Echo-Therapeutics and it is a biochemical sensor based trans-dermal continuous monitoring system that reads and interprets the glucose level measurements.
Multi-sensor glucose monitoring system This system was developed by researchers at Solianis Monitoring and it delivers continuous data on blood glucose variations using the OpticalBridge technology. LighTouch Technology This device uses a technology that projects a spectrum of light into the patient’s finger. They are still in the development stage – loads of these devices have been developed, but none with FDA approval. My sincere apologies – I have had someone doing this for me, obviously not well enough!
The system comprises of a wireless  glucometer and a transdermal permeation system called the Prelude.
No adverse effects were noted after 24 hours and a high level of correlation was observed between the Symphony monitor and the bench top analyzer. Diabetes occurs when the body is unable to use insulin, or when insulin is insufficiently produced by the pancreas. Analysis of the signal provides the information necessary to measure blood glucose levels, hemoglobin and several other measurements. Some monitors use batteries that are readily available in most stores whereas others use batteries that are only available in specific places. The device comprises of a transmitter, main unit, processor, receiver, and an ear clip that contains sensors.
The device analyzes the colored light that is re-projected from the finger in order to measure the blood glucose level. A device that allows accurate glucose monitoring in real time without the use of frequent finger sticks, will render a reliable, less invasive method for continuous glucose monitoring.

No use of any Abbott trademark, trade name, or trade dress in this site may be made without the prior written authorization of Abbott Laboratories, except to identify the product or services of the company. Insulin is an essential hormone, without which the body cannot process glucose, a necessary fuel for all tissues.
So far, most tests included actual blood tests, usually performed by pricking a finger and testing the blood using a portable device.
Keep in mind, that too many buttons or features could turn out to be overwhelming especially for the elderly. This allows diabetes patients to download their historical blood sugar readings to their personal computers for detailed analysis. GlucoTrack DF-F model received CE-Mark approval in June 2013 and Integrity application can sell this device in all the 28 European member states. Although Glucowatch was approved for use in USA by the FDA in August 2002, this decision was reversed in 2007. This could facilitate strict blood glucose control, facilitating safer self-management and improved long-term health benefits through improved maintenance of normoglycemia. FreeStyle blood glucose meters assist in the monitoring of blood glucose (and ketone) levels for people diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. Integrity Application hopes to submit GlucoTrack DF-F to regulators in USA as soon as possible. Non invasive glucose monitoring means that it is not necessary to prick your skin in order to get blood samples. It helps to achieve euglycemia while avoiding severe hypoglycemic events in their patients. Iddo was awarded the 2006 Bar Hillel philosophy of science prize for his work on the relationship between science and technology. Moreover, the company plans to conduct various clinical studies in USA in the second half of 2014.
Besides eliminating the pain completely, it is a simple way to avoid formation of scar tissue.A diabetic watch is a great accessory especially when it comes to taking proper care of diabetes patients.
