The Product Concept in a Film
Das Eye as a Window
EyeSense now measures blood glucose levels in the eye by a painless, quick external, non-invasive method. The chosen technical approach aims to overcome the problems of other technologies which have failed in the past. See also the film about the product concept
EyeSense measures blood glucose in the interstitial fluid below the conjunctiva of the eye, a tissue that is known to tolerate implants particularly well.
A specific chemical sensor is used which reacts to blood glucose and sends out fluorescent light which correlates with the concentration of glucose.
The new mini sensor is inserted at the outer zone of the eye in a simple and painless procedure at the ophthalmologist within only 3 minutes.
