Device Aims To Improve Self-Monitoring for Diabetes Care
Researchers at California-based medical device company GlySens and UC-San Diego have developed an implantable wireless sensor designed to help diabetes patients monitor their blood glucose levels. The device -- which is implanted just under the skin -- uses a sensor to measure blood glucose levels every two minutes and transmits the data to a portable receiver.
