Abstract

Wearable cgm receiver/wearable glucose delivery device

Author: Robin Franzen

Diabetics now have great new ways of delivering insulin (pumps) as well as monitoring blood glucose levels continually. These devices communicate with a device - something like the size of a pager. It would be awesome if this were "wearable" like a necklace/lanyard or a wrist watch. The devices- especially with the younger generation get left in the car- the other purse- on the counter- at a friends house. Current technology has the CGM (dexcom) linking to the iphone. This is a big help, but still leaves room for the things to be left behind. I believe the issue likely is the size of the device needing to be compressed to make it do-able.
