Israeli Device Banishes Finger-Pricking for Sugar Levels in Diabetes Patients – Shoshanna Solomon (Times of Israel)
Israeli startup Cnoga Medical Ltd. has come up with a way to track blood glucose levels without pricking or pain.
Its glucose meter, already approved for use in numerous countries worldwide, uses a camera to provide a diagnosis of blood glucose levels by observing the changing colors of the user’s finger.
Prof. Andreas Pfutzner, who tested the technology in two clinical studies in Germany, said the device performed “with a surprising level of accuracy,” the same as that of needle sensors. “It is a wonderful device” and a “true alternative.”
