NEW TOOLS FOR DIABETES

It is expected in 2007 that this Diagnostic Tool(NMB- 200) for Diabetes will be able to measure Glucose in "Real Time" as well as O2 levels in the blood, red blood cells and iron in addition to the Heart Rate.... What I like best about this product, is that it is "non-invasive" and is worn like a wrist watch. No idea as to its price. Wow, who needs a doctor and lousy insurance forms with gossipy/up-tight/unprofessional office staff? Unfortunately, this probably will not be available for about one year. A reward for those who have patience. Read more:

Non-invasive Glucometry from Orsense Wins Award
Filed under: Diagnostics , Geriatrics , Medicine , Pediatrics

OrSense Ltd., of Nes Ziona, Israel, is another recipient of the technology innovation award from Frost & Sullivan for its non-invasive glucose monitoring system NBM-200. The system, based on proprietary "occlusion spectroscopy" technology, allows continuous measurement of blood glucose, hemoglobin, hematocrit, oximetry, and heart rates. Results from a clinical trial, reported in September, have shown that the system "accurately measures levels of glucose in a home-like setting."

OrSense's patented technology, known as Occlusion Spectroscopy, uses a non-invasive optical measurement platform combined with a ring-shaped cuff. 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 signal-to-noise ratio that is wholly blood specific. Analysis of the signal provides the sensitivity necessary to measure blood glucose, hemoglobin, and other analyte concentrations.
