Today’s diabetes patients that self-administer insulin end up carrying a small purse full of things like lancets, test strips, a glucometer, and an injector. Tracking sugar levels and insulin injections also requires keeping a notepad handy or using a smartphone app to record the readings.
Brighter AB, a Stockholm, Sweden firm, has created a device that combines pretty much everything a diabetic needs to have on hand into one compact, portable device.
According to medtech insider:
A microcontroller from Oslo-based Energy Micro is a key component that makes this level of integration possible.
A truly global venture, the Brighter One device uses a 32-bit blood glucose module developed by South Korea’s Ucaretron powered by Energy Micro’s EFM32, which combines a long battery life with precise measurement capabilities.
