Anyone heard of this?
Here’s an article with more details, but still nothing on how it actually works, accuracy, or data:
They claim to be able to detect blood glucose from blood vessels under the skin using existing commercially-available optical sensors, but my understanding of this technology was that getting useful glucose readings from them is impossible. The company claims to have “found a way to utilize light from existing sensors to better separate glucose in the blood. The device then takes the isolated data and employs machine learning and artificial intelligence to deliver tracking metrics.”
Sounds like marketing bullshit to me. I would guess they plan to market this to non-diabetics based on all of the other biometric tracking sensors with the CGM data provided as a “bonus”, since it won’t be accurate enough to be useful to anyone who really needs it. It looks like a “wellness” product that doesn’t need FDA approval and not a medical device, but the testimonials section has several from Type-I diabetics with one even claiming that it isn’t subject to the delay of other CGMs and “You just have to check your watch and treat!”. Seems pretty sketchy to be making medical treatment claims via testimonial proxy…
