Nemaura has developed predictive algorithms to support alarm functions in its wearable SugarBeat glucose monitoring system. The British company’s device has alarm functionality that can predict a user’s glucose level five minutes in advance with 98% accuracy, 10 minutes in advance with 95% accuracy and 15 minutes in advance with 90% accuracy, according to research. Researchers found that data from the SugarBeat product compared favourably with data from other CGM systems.
Nemaura is expecting to win CE Mark approval soon, at which point it will launch in the UK with a small group of users which will then be followed up with a full scale launch on a gradual basis across the UK and into other major European territories.
